Spicy Potato Burritos with Red Mole Sauce


6 potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 cup shredded cheese (I use a cheddar blend)

1/2 cup frozen corn,thawed (or 1/2 can of niblets)

4 diced red chili peppers

2 tsp chili powder

1 tsp. cumin

3 cloves of garlic, minced

salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup red mole sauce (see below)

6-8 tortillas (I use whole wheat and flax)

fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)


Boil potatoes until tender – about 15 mins. Drain, cool and mash. Mix in chilis, spice mix, 3/4 cup of cheese and corn. Spoon evenly into tortillas, roll up and place in 8 x 8 or 13 x 9 pan. Spread enchilada sauce over top. Sprinkle with rest of cheese (add more if you like). Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or until the potato filling tests hot.

Red Mole Sauce


1 Tbsp. oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp. minced onion

1/2 tsp. oregano

21/2 tsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. basil

1/8 tsp. each pepper and salt

1/4 tsp. cumin

1 tsp. parsley

6 oz. tomato sauce

1-1/2 cups water

1 square semi-sweet chocolate


Heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute. Add onion, herbs and spices and tomato sauce. Add chocolate and stir until it melts. Slowly add water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 – 20 minutes. Serve over Potato Burritos. Enjoy with a salad. Serves 4 hungry people.

  1. Mmm, I love this new theme of yours, it makes me hungry to see this picture.;))I have not had Mexican food forever, perhaps it is time for a burrito.;))Have a lovely weekend,xo


  2. But why is it called Mole sauce?The recipe sounds tempting but I'm off the cumin at the moment so best for me to try it without the cumin…..and coriander goes so well sprinkled on top of anything, in my books.
