These are something I dreamed up for pumping up the volume of plain mashed potatoes. I serve them at holiday dinners a lot; everyone loves them! They add a little zing to regular mashed potatoes.

Wow! These are spicy! I didn't know if the recipe called for fresh or canned jalapenos. I used canned (jarred) my goodness these were hot. I would use a LOT less jalapenos next time. The recipe does say "To taste" lesson learned. You can always add more but you can't take them out once they are in there. Read More
