    Use left-over baked potates for this tasty snack or appetizer. Don't overfill the quesadillas--they aren't tacos!

      Delicious!! We loved this flavorful and spicy meal. I ended up using thawed shredded hash browns, which might have changed the texture slightly, but was still great! We topped with the sour cream and also diced tomato and chopped cilantro. Wonderful recipe and very easy - thank you so much!!
