Potato Enchilada

Recipe by  

"This dish is a favorite of my family's. It sounds awful and even looks that way, but it is very tasty as well as having a bit of your veggies. My kids don't know that it's better for them than a cheeseburger!"

  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook the shredded potatoes until golden brown on both sides. In a small bowl combine the melted processed cheese with the diced tomatoes with chiles.
  2. Stir in half of the peas and half of the corn, and mash them into the hash browns. When well combined, add the remaining peas and corn; continue mashing to combine. Stir in about 1 cup of the cheese and tomato mixture and mix well. Cook for 10 minutes, or until heated through.
  3. Spoon the potato mixture into the tortillas and roll like a burrito. Smother with cheese/tomato mixture.

I have made this dish quite a few times now, and everyone loves it. I have found that a dollup of sour cream helps for those who need to take the edge of the spicy-ness of the sauce.

This was okay, but a little too bland for me. I think kids would like it though, not too many strong flavors. I did not have any processed cheese, so used shredded cheese instead. If I make this again, I might add some spices and/or maybe make some kind of red sauce to go over top.

Absolutely love this! My husband and I are vegetarians, so we're always looking for new, delicious recipes. I've made this a couple times, and hubby keeps asking for it! Thank you!!! :)

You are right-it looks disgusting, but the important thing is that it tastes great! My 6-year-old, my hubby, and I all liked this very much. My 3-year-old wouldn't touch it, but that's nothing new. We loved the queso sauce. Hubby has requested this become his Sunday night meal, while he watches Sunday Night Football! I guess it's a real manly man meal! LOL! Thanks for sharing. It's great to have some new recipes to try!

Took us a lot longer to make. Shredding the potatoes is a pain. If I had to do it again I would use frozen hashbrowns. Looks gross like everyone says, but it was delicious. I would make it again

It tastes really good. Since reviewers noted some "bland" flavor, I added about 3-4 drops of tobasco hot sauce to the tomato and since other said it looks... blah (?), before eating it, I took off my glasses !!

Canned peas? Blechhh. I used black beans instead. Much better

Well, it certainly does look icky, but, it tasted good. I admit I was a skeptic. I added left over chicken that I had bar-b -qued the night before (1 cup) and loved it and will make it again. Thanks for sharing.
