      Potato and Cheese Taquitos
      3 cups leftover mashed potatoes
      1 cup shredded cheese (use cheddar, mozzarella or a Mexican blend)
      red pepper flakes or hot sauce (optional)
      olive oil or vegetable oil
      8 thin corn tortillas
      1 red or green bell pepper, diced small
      Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
      Heat a small amount of oil in a skillet and use tongs to carefully heat each individual corn tortilla for about ten seconds on each side. This step is to make them a bit more pliable and oily, so that they’ll crisp up nicely in the oven. You don’t want them to get crispy now at this step.
      To prepare your taquitos, place about 1/3 cup of mashed potatoes in the middle of each tortilla, and add about a tbs of diced pepper, two tbs of cheese and a dash of red pepper flakes or hot sauce, if you’d like.
      Roll up each of your taquitos, and place them in a baking pan or on a baking sheet. You may need to stick a few toothpicks in them to get them to stay rolled up at this step.
      Bake your vegetarian taquitos in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes, until cheese has melted and tortillas are nicely crisped.
      Taquitos should be served with something to dip them in: guacamole (my own favorite!), sour cream, salsa, or all three.
