"Loved these potatoes but I felt the green pepper was a little over powering and would rather use red or yellow pepper to cut down the pepper taste."

"I was first served these potatoes at a "Mother & Daughter Banquet" about 5 years ago, Loved them!! They were presented as Calico Potatoes. I haven't made them for several years, thanks for the reminder. I plan on making them again real soon. Yummy!!!"

"This is a colorful mashed potato dish with good flavor, but my personal preference would be to omit the green peppers next time."
