  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, place potatoes; add enough water to cover potatoes. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 14 to 18 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork; drain. Return potatoes to saucepan; shake saucepan gently over low heat 1 to 2 minutes to evaporate any excess moisture; remove from heat. Mash potatoes with fork or potato masher, leaving some potato pieces in chunks.

  • 3
    Gently fold bean mixture, cheese, cilantro, cumin and salt into potatoes. Stir in milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until desired consistency.
