HOW TO MAKE IT
- Peel and cook potatoes covered, in boiling water for 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are tender; drain.
- Mash potatoes with a potato masher. Mix green onions with Crema Salvadorena® and cheese then incorporate into the mashed potatoes. If necessary, beat in only enough milk to make fluffy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
