READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Erindipity

More work than your average mashed potatoes, but so worth it. The recipe was given to us by a family at a daycare where I used to work. They actually won a morning show recipe contest with it and I can understand why.

One word...WOWZA! I can't believe this hasn't gotten more than one review! I was looking for a different take on mashed potatoes to serve along side a meatloaf I had made for dinner last night. I am so glad I chose this to make! The slight spiciness of the chili's was offset by the tangy creaminess of the cheese, and the onions and garlic were fantastic compliments as well! I had three servings myself! I could make a meal out of these alone! Here's hoping you get a thousand more five star reviews for this recipe! It truly deserves it!
