I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Mashed Potato Taquitos
...in your mind.

Mashed Potato Taquitos

  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons diced white or yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Pinch kosher salt & coarse ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream, or more if you like it creamier


  1. Combine cooled mashed potatoes with cheese, mix to combine
  2. Warm tortillas slightly (just enough to make them pliable) and put about 2 tablespoons of the mash on each tortilla, spread across and roll up - use a little mash to help seal them shut
  3. When ready to fry, heat about an inch of oil in a medium pan to 350
  4. Cook taquitos, turning to het them until golden brown all the way around
  5. Serve with the avocado crema
