Supper Club: Chipotle-White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

The other recipe we made for pepper night was a spiced up version of mashed potatoes. We made a few changes - we didn't peel the potatoes, and we upped the chipotle powder to about 4 teaspoons. Since we were going for a pepper theme, we wanted it to stand out. These were really good, but we think the addition of some garlic would have made them perfect.
