Easy, tasty, and made-in-minutes is the name of the game with this delicious recipe! Plus, if you've been searching for a new dinner recipe that only takes a few minutes, this recipe is your answer!

With so much going on in the world, with tending to our families and friends, with our non-stop work and to-do lists a mile long, sometimes the last thing we want to do at the end of the day is cook a meal from scratch. In fact, some days it can be downright exhausting! That's why we are huge fans of Minute Mashers™ Mashed Potatoes from Green Giant™ Fresh – it's the healthy side dish without the hassle! Minute Mashers™ are real, whole potatoes – just like the ones you buy from the grocery store. Alongside the real potatoes are the real butter and chef-inspired seasonings for the perfect flavors, so all of the work is already done for you!

Green Giant™ Fresh offers Minute Mashers™ in three different flavors including: Buttery Sea & Pepper, Buttery Chive & Dill, or Buttery Roasted Garlic, which means there's a Minute Mashers™ flavor for everyone! For our latest recipe, we're using the Buttery Sea Salt & Pepper flavor for our Minute Mashers™ Mashed Potato Flautas! We love using Minute Mashers as the base in some of our favorite mashed potato recipes – like shepherd's pie, pierogis, waffles, muffins, and now Flautas!

These Mashed Potato Flautas are going to be a staple in your recipe routine. As we said, they're super easy and quick to make, but they're also really tasty and totally customizable! NOTE: We kept it vegetarian by keeping the filling to mashed potatoes and cheese, but here are a few other ways to mix it up:

  • Protein: Try adding shredded chicken, crumbled tofu, or beans for a little extra protein!
  • Cheese: You can truly use whatever type of cheese you like – mozzarella, or cheddar would work well in this dish.
  • Toppings: Go wild! Add hot sauce, sour cream, shredded cabbage, pickled radish, or jalapeno.
  • Spice: If you like things a little extra spicy, swap the jalapeno in our Avocado Crema for serrano peppers.
