Jalapeno Popper Mashed Potatoes

Rated as 4.6 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...

Made it with the skins left on the red potatoes. Otherwise no change. Mashed potatoes are awesome. Jalapeños just kick them up a few notches!

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...
