green chile mashed potatoes


I made these with mild hatch chiles but you could use anaheim or poblanos just as easily. use 3 anaheim or 2 poblanos

1 1/2 lbs yukon gold potatoes,peeled and cut into chuncks
3 mild hatch chiles (or anaheim or 2 poblanos)
4 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

preheat a broiler. place the chiles under the broiler and cook,turning frequently until the skin is blistered all over. pace the blistered chiles in a plastic ziploc and let sit 15 minutes. remove the skin from the chiles and dice.

while waiting for the chiles bring well salted water to boil in a large saucepan. add the potatoes,cover and cook until for tender 20 minutes or so. drain the potatoes. pass thru a potato ricer and return to the pan. place the potatoes under medium heat and add the diced chiles,milk,butter and cilantro. stir to mix throughly until the butter is melted and evenly distributed.
