Mashed potatoes are a wonderful comfort food to enjoy in the cold season.  The creamy texture and rich buttery flavor make for a most cozy side dish.  One of the best things about mashed potatoes is that everyone seems to have their own unique recipe that is representative of their heritage, culture, and upbringing.

MITI MITI created a recipe for mashed potatoes that uses some of the most popular Latin American ingredients.  Our recipe uses chipotle peppers, queso blanco, scallions, and our very own Chipotle Table Sauce.  It is an easy dish to prepare and really packs a Latin punch.  We also like to keep the skins on our potatoes because it adds a bit more texture

INGREDIENTS:

2 pounds of Yukon Gold Potatoes, notpPeeled, cut into large pieces

4 Garlic Cloves peeled

1 1/2 cup of shredded Queso Blanco

1/2 cup of Milk

1 cup of MITI MITI CHIPOTLE TABLE SAUCE

1 tablespoon of chopped canned Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce

2 tablespoons of Butter

1/2 cup of chopped Scallions

Salt to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Boil potatoes and garlic cloves in a large pot of salted water until potatoes are very tender.  Twenty minutes to twenty-five minutes.

Drain the potatoes and after, place potatoes back in pot.

Mash potatoes with potato masher for approximately one minute.

Immediately add butter, milk, queso blanco, chipotle peppers, scallions, and CHIPOTLE TABLE SAUCE to potatoes and mash.  Do this until queso blanco has melted and the potatoes are smooth in texture.

Season to taste with salt.

SEPTEMBER NEWS ROUNDUP

September is coming to an end, and our team at MITI MITI FOODS can’t believe that October is already on the horizon.  It seems like the month of September ended before it ever began!  Perhaps one of the reasons why we can’t account for the time flying by, is because MITI MITI FOODS is moving full steam ahead.  We are happy to announce that we have accomplished many of our goals and we are continuing developing our delicious brand.

Here are a couple of feats our team wanted to share with you:

We are now being sold at the legendary ethnic foods mecca Sahadi’s.  Sahadi’s is a historical site and Farid Ali Lancheros, one of the founders of MITI MITI FOODS, has had a long history with this wonderful grocery store.  As a little boy, Mr. Lancheros’ father, would take him to Sahadi’s and buy the finest pita bread, pistachios, and dates.  It is truly amazing how foods can inspire so many fond memories, and this is one of the reasons why MITI MITI FOODS continues to market our brand.

We are also being sold at the beautiful Palmer’s Market in Darien, Connecticut.  We had the pleasure of meeting the Palmer family at the BKEATS food show, and we are very happy to do business with people who love plantain chips just as much as we do.  If you happen to be in Darien, check out Palmer’s Market.  It is beautifully curated, and in addition to carrying wonderful fine foods, they have a breathtaking floral section within the grocery store.

Check out where else our sauces are sold on our “where to buy” panel located on the MITI MITI homepage.

In other news, we have our RECIPES page set up.  Check out the recipe for ARROZ CON POLLO.  It is simple, traditional, and easy to make dish and our RED AJI SAUCE really elevates the whole Arroz con Pollo experience.  Many of our customers rave about our sauces and tell our team how they use it to make their own signature dishes.  If you use our MITI MITI SAUCES for your own homemade recipes, please send them our way: info@mitimitifoods.com
