These mashed potatoes are really kicked up a notch! They include your other vegetables, as well as a great garlic flavour. The hidden kick comes from the jalapeno pepper that is cooked together with the vegetables. We really enjoyed this version of mashed potatoes, and I hope you will too!
1 pound red potatoes
1 pound Yukon Gold (yellow) potatoes
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, sliced
12 ounces baby carrots
4 cloves garlic
1 (10 ounce) package frozen white corn, thawed
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1. Place red potatoes, yellow potatoes, jalapeno pepper, carrots and garlic cloves in a large pot. Cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Drain water from pot.
2. Stir in corn, butter and milk. Mash the mixture with a potato masher until butter is melted and potatoes have reached desired consistency. Mix in cheese, salt, and pepper. Serve hot.
