more potatoes

Everyone who reads here knows i love potatoes and i do many styles and this is one that got rave reviews:

Spicy Mashed Potatoes

10 medium potatoes
1 Chipolte pepper
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
1 tablespoon Sweet Green and Red Pepper, diced
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Half and Half
Instant dry mashed potato flakes

Cook the potatoes by your favorite method (i use the microwave potato setting)
Melt the butter with the garlic, Chipolte pepper, sweet peppers and salt
add the milk and Half and Half and bring to a simmer
Remove the Chipolte pepper and mix with the cooked potatoes
USE a FOOD MILL to add the potatoes to the simmering mixture
turn off the mixture and mix thoroughly.
Loosen the mixture with more warm half and half
or thicken the mixture with instant dry potato flakes
