These mashed potatoes were very good - an excellent side to the Roast and baby carrots I fixed in the crock pot. They were creamy, had a nice "bite" to them. I'm not crazy about real "hot" stuff, but you can easily control the "hotness" of these potatoes by the number of jalapenos you chose to mince and use. I was thinking that these would be good with a Mexican blend shredded cheese mixed in. Next time, I'll try it.
