The Art of Chipotle Mashed Potatoes


  • 5 lbs. cooked potatoes
  • 8 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. onion salt
  • 2 Tbsp. butter softened
  • 1/4 cup “Art of Chipotle” sauce of your choice

Mexican Chipotle Meatballs

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. Art of Chipotle Paste
  • 1 lb. ground beef or pork
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 16 oz. jar Art of Chipotle Southwest Sunset Salsa

Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook until softened then add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and let cool.

In a bowl, combine the meat, bread crumbs, egg, salt, pepper, cumin, Art of Chipotle Chipotle Paste and onion mixture.  Shape into 12 meatballs.

Add the remaining oil to the skillet and heat over medium-high heat.  Brown the meatballs on all sides, about 7 min. total.

Transfer the meatballs to a baking dish (if not using an ovenproof skillet).  Pour the salsa over the top.  Bakeuntil cooked through, about 25 minutes.

Top with chopped cilantro and serve with rice or tortillas and shredded cheese.

RECIPE: Mexican Chipotle Pizza

  • Small Boboli pizza crust
  • 1/4 cup Southwest Sunset Salsa
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 link sausage of your choice, sliced
  • 1/4 cup onions diced
  • 1/8 cup quartered artichokes
  • 6 medalions of Roma tomato slices
  • 1/3 cup grated 3 cheese Mexican blend
  • Smokey Red Sensation Sauce

Spread salsa across crust.  Add all ingredients with sausage, tomatoes on top of pizza.  1/2 of cilantro should top pizza near the end of cooking.  Drizzle small amount of Smokey Red Sensation onto top of pizza. 

Preheat oven or grill to 350 (grill flame low to avoid burning crust).  Cook 15-18 minutes depending on desired crispness of crust.  Increase ingredients by about 50% for large pizza.
