Directions

Peel and cube potatoes, add to pot of water and boil until tender (kitchen tip: add a tsp of butter/ margarine/ oil to prevent the starch from the potatoes boiling over).   While potatoes are cooking, in a large saucepan brown ground beef over medium-high heat.  Once ground beef is fully cooked add 1 1/2 cups of water and dry ingredients, stir while bringing water to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer until all water has evaporated.  Once potatoes have finished drain all water, add milk, shredded cheese and butter.  Mash potatoes until a creamy texture has been reached.
