Cheesy Mashed Potatoes

submitted by Jayme S.

This recipe is from this cookbook.

1 1/2 lb. red potatoes, unpeeled, cut into quarters
2 Tbsp nonfat cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. nonfat chicken broth
2 Tbsp. skim milk
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp. ground pepper
Butter buds dry mix to taste(or we also used the spray butter that has no fat and low calories)
1 Tbsp. chopped chives (my grocery store didn't have any, so I used green onions)

Place potatoes in a large pot; cover with cold water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 20 to 30 minutes, until potatoes are tender and easily pierced with a fork. Drain potatoes well. Spray pot with cooking spray; return potatoes to pot (off heat). Add cream cheese, chicken broth, milk, garlic powder, and pepper; using potato masher (do not use food processor, blender or electric mixer), mash potatoes to desired consistency. Transfer to serving bowl and sprinkle with Butter Buds and chopped chives.  Serves:4 (you may need to double if your kids are good potato eaters)
