  2. After 30 minutes the potatoes and onions should be soft.  Turn the burner to medium low and add the sour cream. Blend everything together. Use an emulsion blender or do it in batches using an upright blender.
  3. Once everything is smooth add the remaining cubed potatoes, butter, salt and pepper. Cook for 20-25 minutes until the potato chunks are soft.
