Mashed Potatoes with Chipotles and Cheddar

  • 4 lb. russet potatoes; peeled and cut into large dice
  • ½ cup milk; hot
  • ½ stick of butter
  • 1 tbsp. chipotle in adobo salsa
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese; shredded
  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

In a large pot, place potatoes and enough water to just cover. Boil gently until fork tender, drain, and return to pot. Heat milk with butter until steaming. Add to potatoes along with chipotles, cheddar, and cream cheese. Mash with a potato masher until cheese is melted, or whip in a stand mixer for extra fluffy potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.
