These cheesy potato quesadillas by 매일맛 delicious day on YouTube look amazing with the crispy tortilla and cheesy filling. This can be a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes and a nice vegetarian quesadilla meal. They remind me of the potato tacos at Taco Bell although they are different. I know potato tacos are a hit, but these are so simple to make. The combination of cheese and potato go well because the starch clings onto the cheese easily and gives it a nice cheese pull.



Mashed potatoes:

  • 2 medium-sized
  • 1.6 tsp Parmesan cheese
  • Black pepper
  • Stir-fried onion

Stir-fried onion:

  • 2.7 cups onion
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp of cooking oil (rice spoon)
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 1/2 tbsp of chili pepper powder (rice spoon)
  • 0.7 tbsp Curry powder (rice spoon)
  • 2 tbsp of water (rice spoon)

Other Ingredients:

  • Tortilla 6 inches, 10 sheets 
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Sriracha sauce or hot sauce
  • Tomato pizza sauce


First, boil the potatoes and cut the onions in the meantime. However, you can use leftover mashed potatoes for this recipe too. Fry the onions on a pan with butter on low heat. Once the onions are cook, season them and set them aside to mix with the potatoes. Continue to watch 매일맛 delicious day tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.

Overall, I would make these in a heartbeat if I ever have leftover mashed potatoes because I’m not sure if I would go out of my way to boil the potatoes and make this specifically. I love regular cheese quesadillas, but this would be a great way to switch up a classic cheesy quesadilla into a cheesy potato one.
