Slow Cooker Mexican Mashed Potatoes. I don’t even know where to start. The tanginess from the green chilies? The spiciness from the jalapeño? How about the creaminess from some grass-fed heavy cream?? I guess I could start with any of those but I can’t choose just one.
I have to believe that this is the way mashed potatoes were always supposed to taste. Not the bland terrible mushy mess they usually taste like. Now, if you’re a classic mashed potatoes lover then I apologize but I just can’t do it. I can’t. When I was little I would scream and cry if someone made me eat them. Yes, I was that child.
Now I’m practically having to force myself from not digging into these with the largest spoon I can find. Somehow though I doubt it’s healthy to eat 2 pounds of potatoes in one sitting.
I purposefully left the skin on the potatoes for fiber + texture. They mash up easily, especially when using the yukon gold potatoes. Plus, the gold ones lead to a creamier mash as well. I also chose to use some heavy cream to finish things off since I can tolerate dairy again (minus the breaking out which for right now I’m A-OK with if I can just have some dang cheese). You can totally use coconut milk though! Or even a thick almond milk would work. Just something to smooth everything out.
A sprinkle of freshly minced cilantro adds a bright flavor just before serving.
