Directions Step-By-Step

1
Note: I candied the bacon by drizzling some real maple syrup on top, sprinkled with chopped pecans and baked at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

Steam or fry the tortillas.
2
Heat up the leftover mashed potatoes. OR, we used leftover roasted potatoes which I warmed up in a little bit of oil in a skillet. I added the frozen green peas and scallions the last 1 minute of cooking.
3
Spoon the mashed potatoes into the tortillas. Add the garnishes!
