    Kitchen Witch Steph's Note:

    Though I would never personally accuse mashed potatoes of being boring, this recipe sure gives them some kick. Made with ingredients I usually have in the house and easy to prepare. From

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs red potatoes, peeled and cut into medium dice
    • 1 head garlic, peeled and cloves separated
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 4 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2-1 teaspoon ground dried chipotle chile (to your taste and heat tolerance)
    • 2 teaspoons finely minced fresh chives
    • 5 -6 tablespoons fresh tangy chevre cheese
    • milk, as needed
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper


    1. 1
      Put potatoes, garlic cloves and salt into a large pot and cover with cold water.
    2. 2
      Bring to a boil, then turn down heat and simmer uncovered until potatoes are completely softened, but not falling apart.
    3. 3
      Drain potatoes and garlic, then put cooking pot back on the heat.
    4. 4
      Allow heat from burner to evaporate liquid. Add potatoes and garlic, and stir, allowing the burner to evaporate some excess moisture.
    5. 5
      Remove from burner, turn off heat, and add butter, chipotle, chives and chevre.
    6. 6
      Mash with a potato masher or hand-held mixer, until a soft puree is formed.

      After mashing, add whatever milk is necessary to whip the potatoes into a fine, light mash. Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.

      I will preface this review by stating that I don't like potatoes very much and I absolutely abhor mashed potatoes. I made these for my boyfriend who loves potatoes as a special treat. I loved these and probably ate more than he did! I had to used two canned chipotle chili's that I cut up as I did not have any ground ones. I also skipped the "whip" steps as my boyfriend does not like them whipped. Once they were cooked I added them back to the pot as directed, added the butter, cheese, chives and chipotles and mashed with a hand masher and then gave a quick stir with a wooden spoon and it was done (he likes to have some chunks in his mashed potatoes). I love these and will definitely make them again. Thanks for posting a definite keeper!

      Wow, this was spectacular. I couldn't get dried chipotles, so I used a canned chipotle in adobo. No milk in the house, so I added sour cream & cream. Wonderful change from regular mash. We'll definitely have this again. Thanks for sharing this keeper.
