Author Notes: This recipe, also part of my Cuban Cooking project is hands-down the best mashed potato recipe I have made - ever. It has four ingredients and doubles and triples with ease. I served it this past Thanksgiving and my guests couldn't pin-point what it was made with. Kept them coming back for more. —christinagp
- 2 pounds potatoes
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons butter

- Strain the potatoes, but be careful to leave the puree that has begun to form in the pot and return the potatoes to the same pot.
- Soften butter in a microwave, only for 15 seconds.
- Add the salt, cream cheese and butter to the potatoes.
