This is the way to do it. Use leftover baked potatoes, or simply pierce raw potatoes with a fork, wrap in damp paper toweling, then a tea towel. Microwave for 5 minutes.

This turned out great! I used a precut 20oz package from the store. I used 1 1/2 Tbsp of butter, 2 Tbsp of brown sugar, salt and pepper. I cooked it in a cast iron skillet to get great carmelization. I liked the super crisp small pieces mixed with the bigger ones. Keeper recipe! Thanks."

I sauteed onion and a drained can of Rotel tomatoes to soften the onion, then I added the beans and their liquid. Let that simmer for a few minutes and then got out my trusty potato masher and mashed to the consistency...
