This sounds strange, but it's really, really good. I came up with this when I was craving Mexican food and we didn't have may traditional ingredients in the house. It came out great, and it received rave reviews.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with vegetable oil spray.
  2. Place potato cubes into a saucepan of lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, then cook for 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain potatoes, and return them to the pan. Pour in olive oil and milk; whip potatoes until smooth using a hand mixer. Once the potatoes are smooth, use a spoon to stir in the pinto beans, onion, and taco seasoning mix.
  3. Place a small skillet over medium heat, and coat with oil or cooking spray. One at a time, heat tortillas until pliable. Place a heaping spoonful of the potato and bean mixture onto each tortilla, then place a slice of Monterey Jack cheese over the bean mixture. Roll up tortillas and place them seam side down in the prepared baking dish. Spoon enchilada sauce and salsa over the rolled tortillas.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, uncovered, in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven, and sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the top. Return to the oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

The flavor of potatoes in Mexican food is actually not as unusual as it sounds. Some traditional Mexican foods have potatoes in the ingredients...just usually not mashed with milk. I recommend microwaving them whole and then cubing them & sauteing with the other ingredients. (skipping the milk of course) This provides a little more texture to the enchiladas. The only other thing I added was a few roasted, chopped green chiles that I had leftover from another recipe. These enchiladas would be great for vegetarians, but my husband (the avid meat eater) liked them too!

My family & I enjoyed this recipe but like other reviewers, I tinkered with it to make it more appealing to my family. #1 Please don't mash the potatoes, cubed potatoes make a better consistency. #2 Use the sharpest cheese you can find and #4 Saute onions instead of adding them raw. I think it improves the flavor & you won't have crunchy onions in the mixture. We prefer flour tortillas vs. corn so I changed that as well. This recipe is a solid foundation with room to improvise, there are many things a cook can add to change the character of this recipe to suit their family's tastes. Thank you, LauraKE for sharing and the other folks for their suggestions!

These were really good. I made a few changes to the recipe - I smashed half of the can of pinto beans. I used only grated cheese - a Mexican blend. I did not use taco seasoning because I find it too salty - instead I threw in 2 teaspoons each of cumin and chili powder. I added a clove of garlic - diced. I used green enchilada sauce which was the absolute perfect topping. And I used fresh salsa that I had just made myself.
