What You Need

8
medium  ancho peppers (about 4 oz.)
2
lb.  white potatoes, peeled, cubed
2
 cloves garlic
4
oz.  (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/4
cup  milk
 Salt and black pepper, to taste
1/4
cup   chopped pimentos
1
cup  KRAFT Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided
1/2
cup  BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream

Make It

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Boil ancho peppers in 4 cups water 15 min. or until tender. Drain; cool. Set aside. Meanwhile, boil potatoes with garlic 20 min. or until potatoes are tender; drain. Place in medium bowl. Add cream cheese; mash until well blended. Add milk and seasonings; continue to mash until creamy. Stir in pimientos and 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese.

MAKE a small lengthwise cut in side of each pepper; remove and discard seeds. Fill each pepper with about 1/2 cup of the potato mixture. Place, filled-sides up, on foil-covered baking sheet.

BAKE 10 min. Sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Bake an additional 5 min. or until cheese is melted. Serve warm topped with sour cream.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Try serving this delicious potato side dish with a crisp mixed green salad or vegetable and lean poultry, meat or fish.
Cooking Know-How
When boiling the ancho peppers, they tend to fill up with water and rise to the top. To ensure they hydrate properly, gently push them down with a spoon every few minutes.
