Hands-on time: 25 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes
Yields: Makes 6 to 8 servings


4 pounds baking potatoes

2 teaspoons salt

1 1/4 cups warm buttermilk

1/2 cup warm milk

1/4 cup melted butter

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 (4.5-oz.) can chopped green chiles

1 1/4 cups (5 oz.) shredded pepper Jack cheese

1/2 cup finely chopped cooked chorizo sausage

How to Make It

Peel potatoes; cut into 2-inch pieces. Bring potatoes, 2 tsp. salt, and water to cover to a boil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat; boil 20 minutes or until tender. Drain. Return potatoes to Dutch oven, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes or until potatoes are dry.

Mash potatoes with a potato masher to desired consistency. Stir in warm buttermilk, warm milk, melted butter, pepper, and 1 tsp. salt, stirring just until blended.

Stir in green chiles, pepper Jack cheese, and chorizo sausage, and spoon the mixture into a lightly greased 2 1/2-qt. baking dish or 8 (10-oz.) ramekins. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes.
