My mom isn't Betty Crocker--but sometimes she comes up with some pretty good stuff.Now, I'm sure mom's not the first one to make this dish, but she's where I got it from--so she gets the credit for the idea. I added some...stuff, because I like it this way. Enjoy!

The goods:

4-6 baking potatoes, either 'baked' in the microwave or cut up and boiled (as for mashed potatoes)
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup butter, the real stuff, please.
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup Monterrey Jack cheese, grated
1-2 jalapeños, finely chopped--seed it if you can't take the heat
1 Serrano pepper, finely chopped--same as above
(You can always go with Poblanos if you're heat-shy)
2-3 cloves of garlic, grated. Yes, grated. It's what works the best here. Just do it.
1 small/medium yellow onion, finely chopped--yes, it should be yellow. I have no idea why, that's just what tastes the best. Trust me.
6 slices of bacon--cooked and chopped/broken up--think Bacon Bits, but without the disgusting chemical...aroma.
Spices: salt, black pepper, cumin--easy on the salt and cumin, you don't want to overwhelm the other flavors.

Now, for the peppers--once they're diced (or while you're waiting for the potatoes to cook) and the onions are chopped, and the garlic is grated--sautee in a little olive oil until the onions are softened and just beginning to turn a bit brown. Careful, though--don't scorch your garlic--best to add that after the onions are about half-cooked.

Now, back to the potatoes--mash them--however you break them down is fine. Don't over do it (or put them in a food processor or something) because then you'll end up with potato glue. And that's nasty. Right, once your potatoes are sufficiently smashed up and your peppers, onions and garlic are nicely sauteed, mix in everything except for a handful or so of the cheeses and a slice or so of the bacon. Spread this in a 13 x 9 (or 9 x 13, it really doesn't matter, heh) baking dish, and top with the reserved bacon and cheese. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 375--when the cheese is melted and getting bubbly, it's done.
