My 3 year old hates mashed potatoes. I've tried russets, yukons, flakes, and boxed mixes with no luck. I decided to try this one since he loves tomatoes and salsa. I only made 1/2 a recipe (one pouch of potatoes). I didn't have any olives or chilies, but my sons would not have eaten them. I used a Mexican blend cheese to enhance the flavor of the salsa. I FINALLY found a way that my 3 year old will eat mashed potatoes! We loved the crunch and flavor of the French fried onions. The salsa was a welcome addition as well. The cheese didn't melt as well as cheddar would have, but it was the perfect flavor. Thank you for posting a mashed potato recipe that my whole family will eat!
