Yields: 12 servings
Difficulty Level: Intermediate


  • 1 lb. Russet Potatoes (Approx. 2-3 Potatoes)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Vegetable or Corn Oil
  • 1 cup White Onion, minced
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro, minced

  • 1 1/2 cups Buholzer Brothers Muenster Cheese

  1. Boil potatoes in salted water until just tender, but still firm. Drain. Let sit until cool enough to peel. Peel and dice into 1/2 inch cubes.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat oil in heavy, medium-sized skillet. Add potatoes, onion, and oregano. Cook 7-8 minutes stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Stir in cilantro and chiles. Cook 2 minutes longer, until mixture is heated through. Salt and pepper to taste. Should have about 3 cups of filling.
  3. Place 1/4 cup of the potato mixture on half of a tortilla. Sprinkle with approximately 1 tablespoon cheese. Fold unfilled half of tortilla over the filled half, pressing edges to form a half circle.
  4. Arrange on lightly greased or nonstick baking sheet. Continue, using all tortillas. Brush tortilla tops with melted butter.
  5. Bake 6-8 minutes, or until tortilla browns and the cheese melts. Serve with your favorite salsa.
