Ranch Mashed Potatoes

Ranch Mashed Potatoes
submitted by Andrea Stunz

These potatoes are a family favorite and so incredibly easy and tasty! Mashed taters with a Southern flair.

7-8 medium sized potatoes
1pkg Ranch Dressing Mix
1 8oz. Cream Cheese (softened)
About 1/2 to 3/4 cup milk

Boil the potatoes until they are really soft. Strain the liquid off in a strainer over the sink. Put the potatoes back in the pan they were cooked in.

Add in the cream cheese, the Ranch powder and the milk (add in a little at a time so they aren’t too runny). Stir until the cream cheese is melted and the potatoes are creamy. Use a potato masher if they need a little help getting smooth. You can also add sour cream to help with the creaminess and adds to the tangy flavor.

The Ranch mix and cream cheese can usually be found at Cold Storage and Fair Price’s in “expat” areas. Cream cheese can also be purchased at Phoon Huat (Red Man) in larger quantities. Nice to split with a friend.

I normally make these potatoes when we grill steaks or when I oven-bake pork chops. Add in some steamed vegies and you have a complete and easy, comfort food meal.
