Best Comfort Food With a Kick

Jalapeño mashed potatoes from Cecil’s Texas Style Bar-B-Q

2800 S. Orange Ave.

We guarantee your office holiday party is nothing compared to an OW holiday party. That’s mainly because, besides the annual trip to Wally’s (after the official party), every year we stuff ourselves with grub from Cecil’s Bar-B-Q, and that includes an enormous tub of their jalapeño mashed potatoes. They’re creamy, but not too, and they’re just spicy enough that some might consider them a hazing ritual of sorts for newbies. Once you taste these taters, you’ll never look at mashed potatoes the same way again. (That could also be the cocktails from Wally’s talking.)
