Mashed Potato Enchiladas



Two favorites combined in one dish… mashed potatoes and Mexican food!

My ex-mother-in-law used to make enchiladas filled with mashed potatoes and cheese for me… they were the best things ever.  I never got the recipe from her.  So, I had to recreate these in my kitchen and they do resemble the ones I used to have so generously bestowed upon me.

1 onion, chopped
