I love potatoes, Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes, Chipotle Chili Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, Crispy Cast Iron Potatoes. No matter how you serve them, potatoes are one of my favorite veggies!

While making a Mexican Meatloaf to celebrate my Dad’s birthday in 2012, I decided that I needed the perfect potato recipe to accompany the meatloaf.

I was inspired by one of my favorite Oklahoma Mexican food restaurants, Ted’s Escondido, to make these Mexican Potatoes. On their menu, they’re called “Pappas Mexicanos” and they’re described as a delicious combination of potatoes, cream, onions and spices.

I knew that they would be the perfect side dish for the Mexican Meatloaf. So I created my own version at home!

These Mexican Potatoes have been a staple at my house ever since! I still love serving them with the meatloaf, but they’re also the perfect side dish for a number of Mexican recipes.

Serve Slow Cooked Beef Barbacoa over these mashed potatoes for a seriously scrumptious meal! Or serve them as a side on Taco Tuesday. They’re great with Chipotle Honey Pulled Pork Tacos or Vegan Grilled Veggie Tacos!

Roasted Garlic & Kale Vegan Mashed Potatoes

Soy milk and olive oil add a delicious creaminess to this recipe for Vegan Mashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic & Kale!

Garlic Kale Vegan Mashed Potatoes

When thinking about mashed potatoes, the words cream and butter are usually the first to come to mind, but for those that are dairy-free or vegan, that means no mashed potatoes in their life. Until now that is!

By cooking the potatoes in soy milk, they keep their nice creamy mashed potato texture, while remaining dairy-free and vegan!
