This recipe was great. It was even better than I guessed it would be. I had used a small pack of instant loaded potatoes. I also used onion flakes and omitted the red pepper. Otherwise, I followed the instructions exactly. The quesadillas were very flavorful. My son loved them. He put buffalo sauce on his for a kick.

I've been making this recipe for ages and I guess I never rated it. This is perfect for using leftover mashed potatoes and there isn't much that's more comforting than potatoes and cheese.

WOW! When I looked for recipes to use up a ton of leftover mashed potatoes, I didn't see this one coming. I'm so glad you are this creative and generous to share! Made mine with Cotija cheese ("mexican parmesan", crumbly like feta)and some precooked fajita-seasoned chicken. The potatoes already had green onion and garlic so I skipped that and sprinkled everything with a dusting of spanish paprika for smoky good measure! Perfect 5 for ease of preparation, originality and great taste. What is that, 15 stars???

Good comfort food, Amy. I didn't want to clean a pan so I just baked in the oven (didn't even use oil) so I thought it was pretty healthy! They are so go piping hot and room temp. Thanks for posting. Roxygirl

This is so random and I would never have thought of it. Made for a quick lunch using leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving. I'd make this again to use up leftovers for lunch but I wouldn't go out of my way to make potatoes for this. Great idea and tasted great too. Thanks for sharing.

I did the same thing, MADE the mashed potatoes just to make this. My husband is super picky about what he eats (he usually does the cooking). I made this, it was quick, easy, and both my husband and my 2 year old LOVED it! That's impressive, thanks so much!

This sounded so good, that I made mashed potatoes instead of waiting for leftovers. I used up the last of my salsa last night so I made the potatoes extra spicy with some chili oil (46217), cajun seasoning and chopped banana peppers. Delicious!
