We always host a Thanksgiving potluck style dinner with all the classic fixings. There is one small difference in the way we prepare our entire meal: we incorporate flavors we normally include in our every day dinners. Mashed potatoes are no exception. To give them a nice spicy kick, I like to fold in roasted jalapeño chile strips. The key is to chop them in small pieces in order to scoop at least one piece in every bite and experience the heat that makes this tasty dish so delicious.
