Green Chile Mashed Potatoes

Since the carbonara went so well, when I replaced the cream with green chile sauce, I decided to try it with mashed potatoes.  It’s a delicious and interesting way to cut calories.  This will be one of my new recipes for the lodge.  The guys will love them.  Of course, I can see me adding a little cream cheese, when I’m cooking for the guys!
