Recipe for abstinence

I can't stand fish, so abstaining has become an exercise in simplicity/creativity. ;)

Its not really a recipe, per se. You just start making them and doctor it as you go.

There's 2 different kinds. There's the mashed potato kind which is a good way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. Mix mashed potatoes with cheese, lots of freshly ground cumin, and maybe a dash of chili powder to taste (or canned green chilies or salsa if you like.) I usually throw in a little garlic powder too. Warm up some corn tortillas in the microwave just so they are soft and can bend without breaking. Fill with the potato mixture and fold. You can either butter them and fry them in a pan that way or in a little oil. They come out soft and crispy at the same time (they are kind of like quesadillas with potatos in them.) I serve them with shredded lettuce, salsa, cheese, guacamole, or sour cream just strewn on top. Kinda messy. If I go to L.A., that is how I usually see them.

The other way I make them is actually how I make tacos but I just leave the meat out. When I make tacos the regular way, I often put potatoes in to stretch the meat (thats mexican style.) If we are going meatless I dice up some potatoes and onions, cook in a pan with some oil. I add salt, pepper, garlic, lots of freshly ground cumin, maybe a dash of chili powder, sometimes I throw in some red peppers. If it is looking a bit dry I'll add some salsa or tomato sauce (and doctor up accordingly.) Needless to say, it comes out wildly different everytime I make it, but the cumin is the key (if you don't like cumin - I can't help you.) I make crispy taco shells in a bit of oil, salt them, stuff with the potatoes and top with the usual taco toppings.

I usually serve them with refried beans on the side since mexican rice requires the use of chicken stock, though, I'm going to try to make a batch with vegetable stock and see if it doesn't crap everything up.
