This is comfort food at it's best. I love the blend of just a little spicy with the smooth texture of cheesy potato. I omitted the chives and tossed in just a touch of minsed onion per preference. Perfection!! Thanks Pet~

So good! although I use chorizo all the time for recipes, this is the first time I have ever added it to mashed potatoes! I used roasted garlic and green onions, these smashed taters are absolutely delicious! thanks pets!...Kitten:)

This is comfort food! Would make a great brunch. Just make fours wells and place four eggs in the wells then broil till desired. The only change I made was using scallions is place of the chives.!
