Cheesy Chili Mashed Potatoes (like Abuelo's)

This is an Abuelo's copy cat recipe that I got from my friend's mom. :)

  • 3lbs red potatos (they come in 3lb bags!)
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 8 oz 2% Velveeta (1/2 block)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp minced onion
  • 1 small can green chilis
  • 1.5 oz pimentos (if you have them, I left it out)
  • 3/4 oz pickled jalapenos (finely chopped)

  1. Wash and remove weird spots off potatoes, and cut into quarters. Place in stock pot and cover with water.
  2. Boil over until potatoes are soft to the touch. (I cooked them about 35 minutes) Drain water.
  3. Combine all ingredients into a large bowl. Mash with potato masher until combined, stirring with a fork if necessary.
  4. Pour into a baking dish covered in cooking spray.
  5. Warm in the oven until ready to serve.
Makes 8 servings.
