“This is the way my Mom does Red New Potatoes. My son absolutely LOVES these. Every time he goes to Granny's house, she has to make this for him. *If you can make the sour cream mix a day ahead, and refrigerate it, it's even better! **Use the Hidden Valley Ranch ORIGINAL BUTTERMILK Ranch Dressing mix. It makes a difference!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the package of Original Ranch mix into the sour cream. (If this is made a day ahead, it gets even better!).
  2. Wash the potatoes, and cut them into halves if they are very large new potatoes.
  3. Boil the potatoes in salted water, until soft (about 10-15 minutes).
  4. When potatoes are soft, drain them in a colander.
  5. Put the potatoes back in the pot after draining, add the butter, the evaporated milk, salt and pepper to your taste, and stir together.
  6. Add in the sour cream mixture, and the chopped green onions.
  7. Cover and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Heat over a medium-low heat for about 3 minutes, stirring often, until all is hot again.
  9. Serve.
