“Based on a recipe my BF asked me to make, we both liked this a lot! Altered to use real mashed potatoes. You can either use leftover mashed potatoes (2 cups), or replace the milk and potatoes with 2 cups milk and 2 cups dried potato flakes to save time. Has a mild but pleasing Mexican flavor that I think kids should like. I served this as a vegetarian main dish with a vegetable medley side of carrots, broccoli and red peppers.”
