Fill a sauce pan 3/4 full of water. Place the pan over high heat and bring to a rapid boil. Once boiling carefully add the potatoes. Bring back to a rapid boil. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking 15 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain well. Place the cooked potatoes into a large bowl. Sprinkle the garlic into the potatoes. Pour the warmed milk into the bowl with the potatoes and garlic. Use a potato masher to mash the potatoes. Once you reach the desired consistency add the jalapeno pepper and pepper. Stir to combine. Serve while still warm.
