• 2 cups leftover homemade mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 8 (6 inch) flour tortillas
  • 3/4 cup red enchilada sauce


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In either a small pot on the stove, or in a microwave-safe bowl, heat the mashed potatoes. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine mashed potatoes, 3/4 cup of cheese, chili pepper, cumin, salt, pepper, and garlic. Spoon evenly into tortilla shells and roll up. Place rolls side by side in a 8x8 inch baking pan. Spread enchilada sauce evenly over the top and sprinkle remaining cheese on burritos. Bake at 350 degrees F until cheese is melted and bubbly. Makes 4 servings.
