Thicken Soups With Instant Mashed Potato Flakes

When I find that my soups or stews or too thin or watery, I add instant mashed potatoes for the desired thickness. It works every time. And it's better than adding flour or cornstarch.

I have been doing this for years, also in gravy. I have never been able to get a decent thick soup or gravy made with flour or cornstarch.

This also works well for ground beef/turkey taco mixture. If my mom browned beef/taco seasoning, etc and the mixture (or any skillet mixture) can out too watery/thin. She'd look around to make sure dad wasn't looking and add in instant mashed potatoes...lol. It was like our little secret :)
