BOLD potatoes, Member PoetLb

These mashed potatoes do not taste like anything else you have ever had. They are so bold, dare I say manly. My husband and teenage son loved them. I threw the leftovers into a soup pot and the garlic and smoked paprika made themselves known again, mixing well with the chicken and vegies. I will definitely make these again.
