INGREDIENTS:

From the Box:

1 cup Sweet Potatoes (cut into 1/2 ” cubes)

1 cup Regular Potatoes (cut into 1/2″ cubes) (from a previous box)

2 TBLS Cilantro roughly chopped

Steam rises from the cooked potatoes. (Sweet and regular)

2. Removed from heat and mash.

3. Add Butter and Half and Half and whisk.

4. Add Cilantro.
