Spend more time doing things you love and less time in the kitchen thanks to Minute Mashers™ Mashed Potatoes from Green Giant™ Fresh. Everyone loves mashed potatoes, but making them can be such a hassle. Thanks to Minute Mashers, you can make mashed potatoes a part of weeknight dinners again with this new Minute Mashers™ Mashed Potato Bowl recipe.

Weeknight meals call for easy recipes that can be ready to eat in thirty minutes or less, which is why we love using Minute Mashers™ – especially when craving something warm and comforting during these colder nights. With Minute Mashers, there's no need to boil water, gather ingredients, or peel potatoes – just put the whole package in the microwave and cook for seven minutes. That's it! Then, using oven mitts, smash and mash to your desired potato texture. Try these recipes using Minute Mashers: Savory Breakfast Waffles with Ham & Cheese, Chicken Piccata with Minute Mashers™, Mashed Potato Muffins, or Mashed Potato Flautas.

For this recipe, we use Buttery Roasted Garlic Minute Mashers™ as the base of our chipotle-spiced mashed potato bowl. The combination of shredded chicken, corn, black beans, and mashed potatoes is a flavorful, hearty, and healthy combo you'll love making again and again. As always, this recipe is totally customizable to try these different substitutions for more mashed potato bowl options:

  • Protein: For a quick and easy option, we went with shredded rotisserie chicken in this recipe. But you can substitute any protein you like or have on-hand like pork, beef, or fish. You can keep it plant-based by using tofu, tempeh, or a soy chorizo would be good here as well.
  • Cheese: We went for Cotija cheese here but give cheddar, mozzarella, or pepper jack a try.
  • Vegetables: Corn and beans were our choice of veg here but you can really add any vegetables you like in this recipe. Just make sure you season them well to kick up the flavor of this dish.
  • Garnish: Go wild! We chose cilantro for freshness and serrano peppers for a spicy kick but depending on the sauce you use here, customize with herbs that you love.
  • Sauce: Chipotle sauce is our choice here but if you don't have time to make a sauce, then make it easy on yourself with something store-bought. Salsa, queso. or guacamole would work well here, too.

  1. I make this recipe often. I make three bowls with this recipe instead of two. You will still feel satisfied.

  2. ♡Love♡ your delicious dishes! Appreciate how you always include swaps & alternatives for vegetarians & also picky eaters like myself. Some content creators get a bit miffed if you need to make changes to their clever recipes to suit dietary preferences. You gracefully (& proactively) embrace the idea. Thx!♡

    • We’re so glad you find our recipes helpful and accommodating, Bridget! 🙂 Thanks so much for being here!

  3. Tortilla strips meant as a salad topping goes on nearly all of my Mexican foods and the crunch on this dish would only add to it!

  4. I generally don’t like microwaving food since I’ve worked many years as a chef, I prefer to work only from fresh ingredients. Do you have a list of ingredients in the Minute Mashers, including sodium per serving, preservatives, and whether or not this product contains GMO ingredients?

    • Hi, Linda! All of our recipes are customizable – especially this one! Add (or remove) any ingredients you like. Enjoy!
