Baked Potato Burritos June 16, 2010

Sunday morning, I heard Ryan flipping through channels on the TV out in the living room.  I heard him stop on some Guy Fieri show on the Food Network.  Ryan is not a fan of that dude, or his backwards sunglasses style, so I knew something must’ve made him stop.  Sure enough, a minute later—“Ang!! We have to make these!!!”   Guy was fixin’ up some Potato Flautas that had Ryan captivated.  I missed most of the show but googled the recipe later and used it as a base for what actually was made tonight.  I can’t call these flautas, as they are much bigger than a flauta should be and were baked instead of fried….and I didn’t use most of the ingredients Guy called for….so I’m calling these Baked Potato Burritos. Warning:  this recipe makes a LOT of food!!  Cut it in half, unless you are feeding a small army of dudes. I served them with a homemade avocado tomatillo sauce and some hot sauce.

Baked Potato Burritos

ryan potato burrito


3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup milk
2 tbs butter
1/8 cup sour cream
1 small onion
1/2 jalapeno
1 small yellow pepper
1 small red pepper
1 can black beans
Shredded pepper jack cheese
Olive oil
Salt & pepper
10 flour tortillas


Pre-heat oven to 375F.

Peel and cube the potatoes.  Boil until tender.  Drain, and mash with milk, butter, and sour cream.

While the potatoes are boiling, saute diced onion, jalapeno, and yellow & red peppers until soft.  Add drained and rinsed black beans to the pan.  When the potatoes are ready, add the pepper & bean mixture to the potatoes, and stir well.

Heat your tortillas so they are pliable. I like to wrap them in paper towel, sprinkle the towel very lightly with water, and microwave for 30 seconds.  Fill each tortilla with a few spoonfuls of potato/bean mixture, a sprinkling of shredded pepperjack cheese, and a few drops of hot sauce.  Roll up, and place in an oil-sprayed baking dish.  Finish the rest of the burritos the same way.  Sprinkle the tops of the burritos with a little more cheese, and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes.
