Your Thoughts On Mexican Mashed Potatoes? Sun, 01/23/11 11:30 PM (permalink)
Here's my recipe for Mexican Mashed Potatoes
3 lbs Potatoes, Russet or Kenebec
1 lb Poblano Chiles, Roasted, chopped
4 oz Butter, melted
8 oz Crema Mexicana, this is the thick, delicious cousin to sour cream
1/3 c. Milk, evaporated,warmed
1.5 T. Cumin, always better if you toast the seeds and grind them into powder
* Peel potatoes
* Cut each potato into 1/6ths
* Rinse thoroughly
* Steam potatoes for 15 minutes
* Remove from steamer and rinse with cold water
[ cooking note: this removes some of the starch and prevents the potatoes from becoming gummy ]
* Steam for 15 minutes more or til potatoes are tender
* Remove from steamer and place in large mixing bowl
* Take a wire whip and beat potatoes as you add the butter, chiles, milk and cumin [some folks like to use a potato ricer or masher but nothing beats a heavy wire whip to make your potatoes creamy]
* Adjust flavor with salt
* I like to sprinkle them with a little ground chile arbol as a finishing touch

      Add a little more milk and that would be a delicious soup.
      I'd eat your potatoes along side of the bowl of soup.

        I make a similar version with chipotles in adobo and bacon, and another variation where I cook sliced fresh jalapeno in with the potatoes, then mash them in, plus minced jalapeno stirred in at the end.
