Evil' chef horrifies TikTok users with 'terrifying' mashed potatoes recipe

On Jan. 19, user @elis_kitchen uploaded a video demonstrating how they make their “signature cheesy mashed potatoes”. Instead of using whole potatoes for their dish, though, they use multiple bags of Lay’s. In case you have some strange desire to try Eli’s recipe, here’s how they make their mashed potatoes. First, they combine some water, salt and white vinegar and let it boil. Then, they add several bags of chips to the water until they are, uh, very soggy. They then drain the chips in a colander and put the soggy chips back in the pan, stir them until they have something of a mashed potato consistency and top them with cheese and smoked paprika. “Delicious,” they proclaim as they take a bite of the fully transformed spuds. Most people found the recipe more appalling than appetizing. “This feels illegal to watch,” one user said. “I’m terrified,” another added. Some people, though, reluctantly admitted that they didn’t absolutely hate Eli’s mashed potatoes recipe. “I’m intrigued,” one person confessed. “Kinda wanna try it"
