This is my favorite mashed potatoes recipe. What a great flavor. I warmed up the milk before mashing.

A great flavor booster. I cut the recipe back to serve 2 and subbed 2 tbsp lite cream cheese for the cheddar. Love the hot peppers in there - Served with a Mexican Pork steak recipe Lovely dinner

Okay, I made some adjustments to this, but it was an outstanding recipe start to add your favorites! Cheddar and green chilies were a great combo for two additions of a small tomato and two finely chopped green olives (leftovers I wanted to use up). I also substituted chile juice and a bit of white wine for the skim milk. I omitted butter entirely and added parsley (which I had on hand) instead of the cilantro as well as 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt. We both decided this was terrific, and definitely worth making again. I had this recipe in one of my cookbooks for a long time, and I'm glad I finally made it!
