Mashed potatoes aren't one of my typical summer recipes.
But for these I have made an exception.
The avocado (aka: nature's butter) substitutes nicely for butter, and adds another flavor dimension... as well as healthy unsaturated fats.
Your search for a side to that spicy grilled chicken or fish is over.
Mexican Mashers with Avocado
4 large yellow potatoes, washed and cubed
1 ripe avocado, mashed
2 Tbsp chopped jarred jalapeno slices
1/4 cup Mexican or light sour cream
1 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
1/8 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp salt
Dash ground black pepper
Bring a large pot of water (or vegetable broth for extra flavor) to a boil. Add potato cubes and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until soft. Transfer cubes to a bowl when cooked. Mash to desired consistency.
Stir in mashed avocado and remaining ingredients.
