Creamy, smokey and spicy. Great when paired with roasted meats and a sweet veggie like corn or carrots.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. In a large pot, boil potatoes in water until tender but not falling apart, about 20-25 minutes.
  3. Drain potatoes and mash with the butter and milk. I use my hand mixer.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. In a large bowl combine potatoes, Gouda, garlic and chipotle peppers; mix well.
  6. Put potatoes into a 4 quart casserole and bake, covered, for 45 to 55 minutes stirring once.
  7. I like to uncover the potatoes the last 15 minutes or so of baking time to brown the top a little.
  8. Potatoes can be made ahead. Mix as above, do not bake. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Bake as directed or until potatoes are heated through.

This might be our new favorite way to have potatoes!! Very tasty. I didn't have chipotle chilies so I subbed some green chiles. Love the smoked gouda with the potatoe flavor!

I LOVED these! They were very simple to prepare earlier in the day and just pop in the oven later. I was surprised that the gouda didn't really melt in the potatoes, but the flavors are perfect together. Wouldn't change a thing except to make more next time! Thanks Nick's Mom!
