  1. Place potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan and cover with water by 1 inch. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook, covered, until the potatoes are very tender, 13 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine milk and butter in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat then immediately remove from heat.
  3. Drain the potatoes and return to the pan. Mash with a potato masher or rice in a potato ricer. Add the warmed milk, sour cream, chives, salt and pepper. Stir until smooth.
