  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup canned chicken broth


  1. 1. Cook the potatoes in the microwave on high power until soft, 10 to 12 minutes. Holding potatoes in an oven mitt, peel (or peel when cool enough to handle).
  2. 2. Process the potatoes, garlic, pepper sauce, salt, cayenne, and lime juice in the workbowl of the food processor fitted with the metal blade until puréed.
