Jalapeno Popper Mashed Potatoes

Rated as 4.56 out of 5 Stars

"I wanted to make mashed potatoes with a spicy kick, and since we had a lot of jalapenos and cream cheese needing to be used up, and because we love jalapeno poppers, I came up with this recipe. The fiance ate 3 servings and asked me to make this every time we have mashed potatoes! They were a little spicy but they were the best mashed potatoes I've ever eaten!"

  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and transfer potatoes to a large bowl.
  2. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir green onions, jalapeno pepper, and garlic until soft and fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Mix green onion mixture and cream cheese together in a bowl; add remaining 1/4 cup butter and stir until butter melts. Add sour cream and mix well.
  3. Mix cream cheese mixture with the potatoes using a potato masher until most of the lumps are gone; season with salt.

Best mash I ever made! No changes to recipe.

Really creamy and smooth with layers of flavor that you typically don’t find in mashed potatoes. We’re about mid-range on spiciness, and in the future, I’ll add more jalapeno. The recipe didn’t...

Followed this recipe but added an extra half jalapeño per the suggestions. Would not recommend. I guess it depends if you are using fresh jalapeño or slices and if they are hot or mild. I used f...
