Mouth-Fire Mashed Potatoes Recipe with Habaneros

Mashed potatoes are the ideal side dish - plenty filling, delicious, and they go with pretty much anything. We make mashed potatoes a number of different ways, but this variation skips the traditional dairy and opts for olive oil and other seasonings. and plenty of fiery habaneros, of course, for your pleasure.

Mouth-Fire Mashed Potatoes


  • 1 pound russet potatoes, peeled and chopped into chunks
  • 2 habanero peppers, diced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. Boil the potatoes about 12-15 minutes, or until they are nice and soft. Drain.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  3. Serve!

NOTE: You can easily hand mix this recipe, but a processor or electric mixer will make it more creamy. Also, feel free to add in more oil for a lighter consistency.
