Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

Simply one of the best things I have eaten.  Now we are talking comfort food.  You have got to be kidding, this is not diet food, right?  WRONG!  This is Slimming World diet food!  I love this recipe, oh, wait, did I say that already? Mmmmmmm. Just look at all the deliciousness. I am talkin' yummy flavor here people.

Okay, okay, I'll give you the recipe... but first I have to tell you that I got it from Brenda Layton.  She told me today on the phone that she has lost 90 pounds since seeing me on TV and trying Slimming World for herself.  She took a recipe she found and made it Slimming World friendly.  I want ALL her recipes!  Whoooooop Whoooooop Yay Brenda! You rock! Keep up the good work!

Here 'tis....
Cowboy Mashed Potatoes

1 pound red potatoes
1 pound Yukon Gold (yellow) potatoes
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, sliced
16 ounces baby carrots
4 cloves garlic
1 (10 ounce) package frozen white corn, thawed
Spray butter, spray it don't pour it!
1/2 pkg shredded fat free Cheddar cheese (1 A choice)
Salt and pepper to taste
Place red potatoes, yellow potatoes, jalapeno pepper, carrots and garlic cloves in a large pot. Cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat.
Cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
Drain water from pot.
Stir in corn and spray with butter.
Mash the mixture with a potato masher until butter is melted and potatoes have reached desired consistency.  I used a Kitchenaid mixer.
Mix in cheese, salt, and pepper.
Serve hot.


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the potatoes! This is one of our favorite recipes at home and was soooo easy to make slimming world friendly. I'm happy to be able to give fellow slimmers a yummy recipe they can enjoy. Happy slimming!

  2. How many sprays of the butter did you use?

  3. Oh, yummy!! Just made this with a tiny tweek. I didn't have a whole pound of carrots, so I threw in a bunch of cauliflower with the rest of the veggies (and what carrots I did have), and threw a chicken boullion cube in the cooking water as well. I didn't mix the cheese in, but put a little on the top of my portion. VERY good! Thanks for sharing this!
