    Passed along to me by a family friend. This is equally good but very different with goat cheese or cheddar cheese.

    1. 1
      Saute the onions and garlic in oil until onions are translucent. Add the potatoes, oregano, chili, cumin and cayenne and cook, covered for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. When the potato is tender, add the salt and pepper to taste and take off the heat.
    2. 2
      Spread 1/4 of the filling and 1/4 of the cheese on half of each tortilla. Fold the tortilla in half to cover. Cook by lightly frying on each side until browned and cheese is melted.
    3. 3
      Serve immediately with salsa, avocado slices and sour cream.

      I replaced chili powder with chipotle chili powder for extra pow! Fresh cilantro would have been good in these but I had no cilantro on hand unfortunately. Tested with cotija cheese and subbed cumin seeds for powder. Reviewed for Best of 2012.

      Very good. We tried both cheeses and really liked the goat cheese combo. The directions call for 4 tortillas, and the ingredients 6 - we went with 4, and it was the right amount for the amount of filling (it would have been too light to stretch it to 6 tortillas). Black beans would probably be stellar in these too.

      This is so good! Has a lot of flavor from the spices but not overpowering. I used shallots for the onions and only put a tiny amount of cayenne pepper. Made for a nice light lunch seved with sour cream and avocado. Made for ZWT8.
