Smoky Mashed Potatoes

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Pierre Dance

This one I got from CHILI PEPPER magazine and then it got changed along the way. You know the game, you make it their way the first time , then you start playing around with it. If you like Peppers that are hotter than Green Bell Peppers, give CHILI PEPPER a try. It's great!

We loved these mashed potatoes. I followed your directions exactly and the end result was a wonderful garlic potato. I loved the fact that I could use the fresh oregano from my herb garden. I bet this would also be wonderful with red skinned potatoes. Thanks Pierre Dance for sharing this great recipe.
