This week I have revisited Rachel Ray's 365: No Repeats. I prepared recipe number 144: Super Mashers with Chicken and Green Chili Hash. Now I am a huge fan of anything green chili, so this seemed like the perfect dinner... chicken, green chilies, mashed potatoes. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint (except for the fact that I dumped the leftovers all over the kitchen floor, that was disappointing).
Every layer in this dish was full of flavor. You start with a layer of garlic and scallion mashed potatoes; add a layer of sharp cheddar cheese; and top it with chicken, bell peppers, onions and green chili strips seasoned with green chili salsa. It was like a fajita in mashed potatoes instead of a tortilla! To change it up a bit, you could stuff a baked potato or fill a tortilla with the same ''hash''. YUM!
This recipe is one of a variation on a theme. She has what she calls a master recipe and then makes a couple more featuring a few different ingredients. Same basic dish with different flavors. I can't wait to try the other variations!
