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!

Pesto Smashed Potato Salad Recipe

Growing up, I was never a fan of potato salad. To be fair, I wasn’t a fan of a lot of foods. Blasphemy, I know! The food blogger that was a picky eater growing up, say it ain’t so, oh, but it is!

A few years after moving to California for college, I started trying new foods and recipes, and realized what I had been missing all of these years! Ahem, guacamole, the green stuff, freaking delicious! Fish, sushi, yes, please! But one thing I can say I’ve never really taken a liking to is potato salad. I’m guessing my aversion to mayonnaise might have a little something to do with that!

So today I’m making a potato salad that’s colorful, flavorful, sans mayonnaise and filled with tons of green goodness!
