Chunky Chipotle Mashed Potatoes

6 servings
Puré de papa con chipotle


  • 3 pounds red potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 scallions
  • 1 chile from chipotles in adobo sauce, chopped, or to taste
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sauce from chipotles in adobo sauce, optional
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • To taste kosher or coarse sea salt
  • To taste freshly ground black pepper

To Prepare

  • Rinse and quarter the potatoes. In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook for about 15 minutes over medium- high heat, or until thoroughly cooked and soft. Drain.
  • In a large, heavy skillet set over medium heat, add the chunks of butter. Once it melts and begins to bubble, stir in the scallions and cook for a couple of minutes until they soften. Add the chopped chipotle chile and combine well. Add the cooked potatoes along with the milk.
  • Using a potato masher or a wooden spoon, mash the potatoes roughly as you mix them with the chipotle and scallion mixture. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Serve hot.
