Creamy whipped cream cheese garlic mashed potatoes loaded with spicy jalapenos, mild cheddar cheese and salty bacon.
loaded mashed potatoes are probably the best side dish. They are typically loaded with cheeses, meats, and all types of fats like cream, sour cream, and soft cheeses. These potatoes are really delicious and savory with a lot of heat. It is actually inspired by one of my favorites jalapeno poppers. Jalapeno poppers are just jalapenos that are hollow or sliced in half then filled with either cheddar or cream cheese. Some are then breaded and fried to form a crisp crust, some are wrapped in bacon and some skip that all together and just eat them as-is. Check out my tips and tricks below for the best jalapeno and cheddar mashed potatoes. Try this recipe out and let me know what you think.
TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST JALAPENO AND CHEDDAR MASHED POTATOES
softened cream cheese: just like you want your butter to be softened before you whip it in to your mashed potatoes. the same goes for cream cheese. that will help the mash from getting tacky and gummy.
warm your milk: whether you use milk, heavy cream or half and half. always lightly heat your milk so it incorprates better into the mash resulting in fluffier potatoes
seeds optional: for this recipe i use a lot of jalapenos so that it’s throughout the entire mash. i removed the seeds so they don’t mess with the texture of the mash and to subdue the intensity of the jalapenos
