Hi Pinners! I am so happy you’ve found my site. You are going to LOVE these Tex-Mex mashed potatoes most commonly known as Abuelo’s papas con chile. I’ve had a lot of you ask if I cook the peppers. No, I chop them up and just thrown them in. The potatoes are so hot that they will soften without being cooked.

    I made these and as advertised were spot on, however I did finely mince the vegetables and they did not soften enough for my taste. If you like a little crunch your good to go. The next time I will precook the vegetables just a little before putting them in the potatoes. Overall great recipe, my wife won’t eat most of the ingredients solo but she loved them!
