These are very yummy! They don't have that kind of sour cream here so, I just used reg sour cream and extra chives. Great flavor just needs salt... Thanx:)

What a great way to make mashed potatoes. The flavor was great and I liked that I could cook the potatoes while having my meat cooking in another crock pot. I couldn't buy sour cream and chives chip dip so I made up my own. I served this with Crockpot Dry Rub Brisket #164653. What a great combination!
