I wanted to make mashed potatoes with a spicy kick, and since we had a lot of jalapenos and cream cheese needing to be used up, and because we love jalapeno poppers, I came up with this recipe. The fiance ate 3 servings and asked me to make this every time we have mashed potatoes! They were a little spicy but they were the best mashed potatoes I've ever eaten!
