These Easy Mashed Potatoes with Sour Cream are the most delicious mashed potatoes you will ever have. They're light, creamy, buttery and tangy and easy to make with the help of your stand mixer - No hand mashing required!
Cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes and place them in a large pot with the chicken broth. Add enough water to cover the potatoes and add about 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for about 10 to 12 minutes, until the potatoes fall apart easily when pierced with a fork.
Meanwhile, heat the milk and butter in a small saucepan, until the butter is melted. Keep warm.
As soon as the potatoes are tender, drain them in a colander.
Place hot potatoes in mixing bowl and mix until smooth, about 1 minute.
Slowly add in milk/butter mixture and sour cream.
Turn up speed and beat for about 30 seconds, or until milk is absorbed. Gradually turn up speed and mix for 1 minute longer.
Switch to whipping attachment and beat for about 1 minute, or until fluffy.
Serve warm topped with extra butter (if desired) and chopped chives.
