    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 4
    1 (4-oz.) pkg. Idahoan buttery homestyle mashed potatoes
    2 c. water
    ⅔ c. Hy-Vee sour cream, divided
    1 ½ tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
    1 (15-oz.) container fully cooked seasoned shredded beef in barbecue sauce
    ½ c. bottled Hy-Vee beef gravy
    ½ c. finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    4 Basket & Bushel grape tomatoes, for garnish

    Things To Grab

    • Medium microwave-safe bowl
    • 4 (12-oz. each) heat-resistant glasses


    1. Prepare mashed potatoes according to package directions using water. Let stand for 1 minute; stir in 1/3 cup sour cream and chives.

    2. Meanwhile, stir together beef in barbecued sauce and gravy in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on HIGH 3 minutes or until heated through, stirring halfway through.
