Chicken broth adds a savory touch and reduced-fat sour cream adds richness without lots of fat.

Prep: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • 3 pounds
    baking potatoes, (about 8 potatoes), peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup
    reduced-sodium chicken broth, heated
  • 2 tablespoons
    reduced-fat sour cream
    freshly ground pepper, to taste
    salt, to taste
  1. Place potatoes in a large heavy pot and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Drain the potatoes and return to the pot. Off the heat, mash potatoes, adding enough hot broth to make a smooth puree. Stir in sour cream and season with salt and pepper.
