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
