This is a great way to transform mashed potatoes and leftover meat into a yummy burritio even the kids will love.
PREP TIME: 20 min
In a medium saucepan, bring water and 3 tbsp. water to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and stir in milk and potato flakes with a fork until well blended. Set aside.
In a medium skillet, over medium heat, melt 2 tsp. butter. Add onions, cook and stir until tender. Stir in chicken, 1/2 cup salsa and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil, cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cheese and potatoes to the meat mixture.
Spoon about 1/2 cup of potato mixture down the center of each warmed tortilla, added lettuce and salsa on top, rolled up and served immediately.
I made a few adjustments to the recipe since there are only 2 of us. I cut the recipe in half, substituted the chicken with Johnsonville ground sausage (mild italian flavor), only used 1-1 1/2 Tbsp. of taco seasoning, colby-jack cheese and seasoned onions with bell peppers. It turned out so good!!
