  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Drain potatoes and transfer to a large bowl. Pour in milk and mash until smooth. Stir in onions and cheese; mix well. Spoon 2 heaping tablespoons of potato mixture into the center of each tortilla and fold in half; secure with a toothpick.
  3. In a large skillet add enough oil to reach 1 inch in depth and heat over medium-high heat. Fry tortillas until crispy. Serve with ranch dressing for dipping.

This tasted like a perogie--and it was delicious! I used leftover mashed potatoes and simply reheated them in the microwave with some shredded cheddar cheese. I spread it to within an inch of th...

These are really pretty good. A perfect use for leftover mashed potatoes. My son gobbles them up. Don't make too many at once though because they are not very good reheated.

I didn't really care for this, but my son liked it. After reading the other reviews, I decided to add 2 tsp. of powdered ranch salad dressing to the potatoes for more flavor and used much less o...

Great idea!! I actually turned this idea into Shepherd's Pie tacos. They came out well, but I feel they would have tasted better baked after cooking in the skillet.

This was a good base recipe. I ended up adding a lot of spices.
