Abuelo’s Papas con Chile Copycat Recipe

Abuelo’s Papas Con Chile aka Mexican Mashed Potatoes is one of the best mash potato recipes of all time. If you love Tex-Mex you will love these potatoes

You are going to want to make these Tex-Mex mashed potatoes most commonly known as Abuelo’s papas con chile over and over. I’ve had a lot of you ask if I cook the peppers. No, I chop them up and just throw them in. The potatoes are so hot that they will soften without being cooked.

    Best Mexican Food around if you eat here it will ruin eating anywhere else you will definitely want to go back.

    They look great! But with something bursting with flavor like that, have you thought of repurposing the portions not used? Try egg &/or flour as a bonding agent. Then drop them for a hot swim till golden brown. Can be served as an app if you add a sauce or dip. Or as an extra side. Just a suggestion. Less waste. More money.
    Good luck with your endeavors. Be blessed.
