Chili's Loaded Mashed Potatoes


Went to Chili's a little while ago and as a side had their loaded mashed potatoes. I fell in love with it but couldn't stop thinking about how simple and cheap it is to make for myself at home. Very simple and yet delicious to go alongside any of your great meals. Here is how its done.

Ingredients
6 large potatoes
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp butter
2 oz milk
salt and pepper to taste

As much as  you want, this is to sprinkle on top
-full pieces of bacon strips or bacon bits
-chives
-shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese

Directions
If you are using bacon strips, go ahead and place them in the oven on 400F for about 15 minutes or until very crispy, remove from the oven and set aside to cool. Once cooled, crumble into tiny pieces.

Place a pot full of water on the stove on high heat and bring it to a boil, while its starting to boil. Peel and cut your potatoes into big chunks and throw it into the boiling water. Allow to boil for about 10 - 15 minutes or until the potatoes are nice and soft. Drain and set aside.

In a large bowl a little at a time pour in your drained potatoes pieces, milk, sour cream and butter and mix using a handheld electric mixer in order to get it nice, smooth and creamy. Once you've finished mixing, add in your salt and pepper to taste and mix well.

Cut your chives into small pieces and mix it in a small bowl with the shredded cheese and your bacon pieces.

At the time to serve, plate your mashed potatoes nice and warm and on top sprinkle the cheese, chive, bacon mixture and serve. Because the potatoes are hot, the cheese will begin to melt on top.

Tip: Always when dealing with potatoes, in order for them not to get black. Place them into a bowl of water as soon as you peel it. This helps it keep its nice white or cream color without blackening spots.

Enjoy

  2. Hi Anonymous,
    A great way to do it with less fat is just to use cheese and butter with less fat. And instead of regular bacon you can use turkey bacon (both ideas are what I myself used) That way you will have less fat. The only fat in here would be from bacon, butter and cheese. Switching it to what I just said will solve your problem.
    Enjoy
