Mashed Chiles Con Papas (Gluten Free)

I don't speak Spanish so I don't really know if this name translates correctly, but that's what we call them around here. You can also do a roasted version of this recipe by just combining all ingredients except cheese and sour cream in a ziploc bag with some oil and then roasting them in the oven.You can also reduce the fat of the mashed version by just boiling the potatoes, but I prefer pan frying them:)

  • 3-4 potatoes, peeled and cut into pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or oil
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
  • small can of diced green chiles
  • 1/4 cup all natural sour cream
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • additional salt and pepper
Heat butter/oil in large skillet. Add potatoes and onions. Season with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Cover with a lid and continue to cook on medium, stirring frequently, until potatoes are soft enough to mash. Transfer to a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mash with a potato masher or hand mixer.

*As with all our gluten free recipes, check each individual ingredient you buy for gluten free confirmation.
