Grilled Habanero-Potato Mash


  • 1 pound small new potatoes
  • 1-2 habanero peppers, minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, minced
  • Salt to taste

Cooking Directions

  • Preheat grill to medium heat.
  • Cover potatoes and 1 tablespoon butter with tinfoil and set on top rack of grill. Grill about 15 minutes.
  • Dash potatoes with salt and cover, then grill another 30 minutes or until potatoes are cooked throughout. They are done when you can pierce them with a fork all the way to the center easily.
  • Transfer potatoes to a mixing bowl and add remaining ingredients.
  • Mash with a thick for or potato masher to combine all ingredients. Don’t use a food processor, as you’ll ruin the consistency.
