Leftover Mashed Potato Tacos: Sam the Cooking Guy's quick, easy meal recipe

Serving Size:

Makes 4


  • 1 1/2 cups leftover

    mashed potatoes

  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions (scallions)
  • 4 handfuls of potato chips – preferably the extra-crispy

    kettle kind


Warm the potatoes in a small pot or in the microwave until they are heated through. Heat the tortillas in a nonstick skillet until they begin to get a little color in spots and a little crispy.

Spread some sour cream onto each tortilla. Add about 1/4 of the mashed potato to each tortilla. Drizzle with the hot sauce and then sprinkle with the green onions. Take a handful of potato chips and crush them on top of each taco.

Fold in half and serve.
