  • 1 lb baby new potatoes
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

  • Place potatoes in large saucepan; pour in enough cold water to cover and season generously with salt. Bring to boil; cook for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain well and let cool until easy to handle.
