Kicked Up Rustic Mashed Potatoes

I recently read about mashed potatoes made with garlic and chipotle adobo sauce. It occurred to me it might be fun to use my Phantom Chipotle Salt to really kick the potato experience over the top. Wow, what a tasty treat for a side dish! This salt blend adds a subtle smokey background heat that is most enjoyable.

  • 6 medium/large potatoes, cleaned and cut into large chunks with the skins on.
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • ½ cup of milk or cream
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) of butter
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, either finely minced or pressed through a garlic press
  • 1½ teaspoons of Phantom Chipotle Salt (If you can't make this salt blend, finely mince ¼ of a dried Chipotle pepper without the seeds and mix it with enough plain table salt to reach your desired level of heat.)
  • ¼ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper.
  • Place the potatoes in a large pot, cover with water. Then add the oil to prevent the water from boiling over the top of the pot.
  • Cover the pot and bring the potatoes to a rapid boil over medium-high heat. Lower the heat to medium-low and let the potatoes cook for about 15 minutes, until fork-tender.
  • Heat the milk and butter in the microwave until the butter is melted.
  • Mash the potatoes with the milk, butter, garlic, Phantom Chipotle Salt, and pepper.
  • Serve hot.
