    Julesong's Note:

    Based on a recipe from the 1997 Southern Living Annual Recipes, these mashed potatoes take on a beautiful terra-cotta color and a rich, unusual flavor!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut the corn from the cobs; it will take about 2 ears (or 3 small ears) to make one cup.
    2. 2
      Cook the cut corn, garlic, and green chilies (with juice) in butter over medium low heat, stirring, until the corn is tender (careful not to burn!).
    3. 3
      Puree the cooked corn mixture in a food processor or blender until pieces are very small, adding extra milk by the tablespoon, up to 6 tablespoons, if necessary for liquidity; set aside (note: some people prefer to not puree the corn mixture, letting it remain chunky).
    4. 4
      Cook the potatoes in enough water to cover for about 20 minutes or until tender; drain.
    5. 5
      Combine potatoes, milk, sour cream, and seasonings and mash with a manual potato masher or potato ricer (NOT an electric mixer) until smooth.
    6. 6
      Stir in the corn mixture and the green chilies and combine well.
    7. 7
      Makes 4 to 6 servings.
    8. 8
      Leftover Thunderbolt Patties: combine 2 cups of the leftover Thunderbolt Potatoes, 1 large beaten egg, 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, and 2 Tbsp flour; shape into 8 patties and dredge in 1/2 cup of cornmeal; cook the patties in 1/2 cup of hot vegetable oil until browned, turning only once.
    9. 9
      Note regarding mashing versus using an electric mixer: the best method to make mashed potatoes is, in my opinion, a potato ricer or manual potato masher; using an electric mixer will work the potatoes to the point where the starch molecules break down, causing the potatoes to take on a very sticky and gummy consistency.

      The most flavorful mashers ever! I added diced ancho chiles. Make a double batch & freeze half.

      These were SO GOOD! I pureed the corn cause I don't like corn in things. I used half and half instead of whole milk. Very flavorful! I didn't know about the ricer thing and its good to know. Thanks Julesong!
