I FINALLY got this from my mom, it is an old family recipe. It can get pretty hot so be careful with the hot pepper seeds. I had to make up the amounts as my mom never measured anything so these are just suggestions really. Just kind of eyeball it, there is no right or wrong amount - if you like more carrots and less bell pepper that is what you want to do. I love to kind of mash my potatos and carrots together when I eat it - yummm. It's even better (and hotter) the next day.
