Ingredients

  • 3 Cups mashed potatoes
  • 4 flour tortillas, large
  • 2 Cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 scallions, chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon butter

Directions

Heat pan to medium and grease with butter.

Spread sour cream on the entire tortilla, layer half of the tortilla with a large spoonful of mashed potatoes, cheese and scallions. Fold over. Repeat for the rest of the tortillas.

Cook quesadillas for 1-2 minutes on each side, checking frequently to make sure they don't burn.

Top with more sour cream and scallions, if desired, and serve.
