Potato Enchiladas

I am so behind on posting recipes that I've made and taken photos of, but I don't want to post too many recipes in a row. Sometimes I think that I should have a separate food blog, but I don't think I could keep up with two blogs. Besides, I'd like to just have one with all the different parts of me and my life. So here is the second recipe this week. (And I still have a few more to post soon.)

I've had this recipe for years and have no idea where I originally found it. It is unusal and very good. It can be a fun side dish to a Mexican meal or you can eat it as the main dish like I sometimes do. Sometimes I throw in green chilies or cilantro with the potatoes.
Potato Enchiladas
1 dozen corn tortillas
1 c. onion, chopped
1 c. potato, diced, boiled
2 c. Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 (10-oz.) can enchilada sauce

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Combine onions, potatoes, and 1 cup cheese in bowl. Dip tortillas in hot oil until soft, then in heated enchilada sauce. Fill dipped tortillas with potato mixture, then roll and place in casserole dish. Spread with sauce and cheese. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until cheese melts.

  1. Wow, this sounds really good! I love potatoes in my mexican food, but never thought of trying them in enchiladas. I guess I know what we need to have for dinner this weekend! Thanks for sharing.

  2. When we moved to Idaho years ago our friends in California gave us a hard time saying that we were going to eat so many pototoes that we would look like potatoes! ha Ha
    Well I do admit I love potatoes in just about every form but I have never in all these years thought about putting them in Enchilada's :D
    I'm trying to picture in my mind how that would taste (do you ever do that).
    I think it would be good. I may just have to try this one and see what the fam thinks.
    Good one!

  3. Growing up, we had a family from Mexico who told us they make enchiladas with mashed potatoes that have been mixed with chili powder and onions.
    I love your recipes. Keep them coming!

    Now this is a recipe that I like, one with only 5 ingredients! I'll give this a try and let you know how we like it. We've never had potato enchiladas. Sounds interesting!

    Have a great week!
