Puré de papa con chipotle
Serves 6

3 pounds red potatoes
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 scallions
1 chile from a can of chipotles in adobo sauce, or to taste
1 to 2 tablespoon chipotles in adobo sauce, optional
1/2 cup milk
Kosher or sea salt, or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

Rinse and quarter the potatoes. In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook for about 15 minutes over medium- high heat, or until thoroughly cooked and soft. Drain.

In a large, heavy skillet set over medium heat, add the chunks of butter. Once it melts and begins to bubble, stir in the scallions and cook for a couple of minutes until they soften. Add the chopped chipotle chile and combine well. Add the cooked potatoes along with the milk.

Using a potato masher or a wooden spoon, mash the potatoes roughly as you mix them with the chipotle and scallion mixture. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Serve hot.


Absolutely the best mashed potatoes ever. Simply yet full of flavor without the burn. Thanks Pati!

I made the chipotle mashed potatoes and my family loved them. Super delicious thanks

I saw this episode as the first in the second season! I made the potatoes that night and they were delicious! I will be making them again soon--maybe tomorrow! (even my son, who hates mashed potatoes, loved them! :-)
I love your second season and can't wait to see all of the episodes...the only thing is I miss you saying "and turn ordinary ingredients into something beautiful" (that always makes me smile :-)

I made these last night and they were really tasty. The preparation was a snap. I can see why you call them comfort food.
