Poblano and Chive Mashed Potatoes

Poblano Mashed Potatoes, a spicy version of mashed potatoes

The addition of roasted poblano peppers takes these mashed potatoes from simple to spectacular.

As promised I’m posting a simple recipe to spice up one of everyone’s favorite dishes. This comes from the newly published cookbook Tasting Colorado, Favorite Recipes From the Centennial State. and compliments of Chef Richard Sandoval from Tamayo Restaurant, located on Historic Larimer St. in Downtown Denver. When we venture out of our suburban bubble, it’s one of our favorite restaurants to visit. Tamayo offers modern Mexican cuisine that is artistic, clever, bold, contemporary, and inspired by the earthy flavors of Chef Sandoval’s native Mexico. Tamayo also offers a collection of over 100 tequilas and agave-based spirits.

I’m also taking this time to announce the winner of the Tasting Colorado Cookbook giveaway. Using random.org, Holly over at A Baker’s House will be receiving an autographed copy of this great cookbook. Holly, you are officially forewarned, you’ll want to make ev-er-y-thing in it.

Thanks to all who entered. And a reminder, if you’d like to purchase a copy of the book, it’s available at Amazon.

    Yum! I’m going to be making these this summer when the chives and peppers are abundant – what a great idea! Congrats to Holly – looks like a wonderful book.

    These look just wonderful. I make twice baked potatoes with roasted poblano peppers and man are they great. That is just a delicious flavor combination. Michele’s book is one of my favorites.

    I know Trevor probably won’t care for this but I don’t care, I will like it so much that I have to make it. Even if I eat it all!
