awesome!! i cheated and made some instant mashers first, then i stirred in some sour cream and heavy cream and a can of extra hot rotel. i used siracha and tapatio for the hot chili sauce and i used way more. i also used 1/2 cup cheese inside the potatoes and then 1/2 cup on top. i topped the whole dish off with more green onions. yummy!! fantastic! i'm always looking for more side dishes to go with all the spicy mexican/southwestern food i make. this is a tasty keeper for sure! great make-ahead dish too. thanks a ton!
