Lovely flavourful mashed potatoes. I used a Chipotle garlic spread. No butter, they really didn't need it. Just made enough for 4 servings, we had some for supper tonight and will finish them for tomorrow night. Quite delicious, I elected to leave the skin on, we like them that way; the colour was a little orange/yellow because of the Chipotle but still looked very appetizing. I will make these again, perhaps trying different flavoured cheeses, thanks for posting.Feb 21/10 - did this again for supper tonight, delicious! although i tried the bursin cheese this time and we do prefer the other cream cheese, this had not enough flavour and had to add garlic to it, but it was still delicious!
I did use the butter and they were a hit with the family.
