This Mexican mashed potato is the perfect side dish. You can use it as an accompaniment for almost anything such as our Mexican Roast Chicken or Honey Glazed Pork Chop.

It’s also a key component in many of our dishes like our Mexican Fish Pie and the deliciously naughty Mashed Potato Bacon Bombs.

How to make it

  1. Put the potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water and boil for 15 minutes until tender. A sharp knife should slide easily into them.
  2. Drain and return to the saucepan.
  3. Add the butter, chipotle paste and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Mash thoroughly, making sure you get rid of all lumps.
  5. For a crispy top, top with cheese, place under the grill for 5 minutes until golden brown.
