This dish is a favorite of my family's. It sounds awful and even looks that way, but it is very tasty as well as having a bit of your veggies. My kids don't know that it's better for them than a cheeseburger!

  • Stir in half of the peas and half of the corn, and mash them into the hash browns. When well combined, add the remaining peas and corn; continue mashing to combine. Stir in about 1 cup of the cheese and tomato mixture and mix well. Cook for 10 minutes, or until heated through.

  • Spoon the potato mixture into the tortillas and roll like a burrito. Smother with cheese/tomato mixture.

I have made this dish quite a few times now and everyone loves it. I have found that a dollup of sour cream helps for those who need to take the edge of the spicy-ness of the sauce. Read More

This was okay but a little too bland for me. I think kids would like it though not too many strong flavors. I did not have any processed cheese so used shredded cheese instead. If I make this again I might add some spices and/or maybe make some kind of red sauce to go over top. Read More

You are right-it looks disgusting but the important thing is that it tastes great! My 6-year-old my hubby and I all liked this very much. My 3-year-old wouldn't touch it but that's nothing new. We loved the queso sauce. Hubby has requested this become his Sunday night meal while he watches Sunday Night Football! I guess it's a real manly man meal! LOL! Thanks for sharing. It's great to have some new recipes to try! Read More

Took us a lot longer to make. Shredding the potatoes is a pain. If I had to do it again I would use frozen hashbrowns. Looks gross like everyone says but it was delicious. I would make it again Read More

It tastes really good. Since reviewers noted some "bland" flavor I added about 3-4 drops of tobasco hot sauce to the tomato and since other said it looks... blah (?) before eating it I took off my glasses!! Read More

Well it certainly does look icky but it tasted good. I admit I was a skeptic. I added left over chicken that I had bar-b -qued the night before (1 cup) and loved it and will make it again. Thanks for sharing. Read More

It was great. My husband and I really enjoyed this dish. I used shredded sharp cheddar cheese instead of the process stuff. I also used Muir Glen Organic Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles along with a dash of jalapeno sauce. I topped with sour cream and avocado. My husband said "A " and he is a meat and potatoes guy. We will definitely make again. Read More
