Cowboy Mashed Potatoes Recipe
Hey everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend! My weekend was fantastic! My younger sister, daughter and I traveled to Mankato to visit my older sister and her family. We ate at a couple great restaurants, went to the Pioneer Power Tractor Show and Antique Flea Market in Le Sueur, and cooked some amazing food! Here are some pics of our adventures!

Right: One of the most amazing restaurants ever! Henderson RoadHaus in Henderson, MN! Keep an eye out for a future review!
One of the recipes my brother-in-law prepared were these amazing Cowboy Mashed Potatoes! I wasn't too sure about them at first... the ingredient combo is a little unusual to me, but they are so delicious! They are not spicy from the jalapeno, in fact, it adds a great flavor. I love all the veggies mixed in. Total comfort food! Top with a little butter and salt and pepper for the perfect side!
