My son went to Moscow last year and ate Mashed Potato Quesadillas in a restaurant one night.  He has been on my case ever since to make them for him.  I had never heard of such a thing!  He said they had veal in them. I’m not a huge veal fan so I have substituted chicken but I think any meat or no meat would work fine.

Mashed Potato Quesadillas

2 cups mashed potatoes

1 lb. boneless chicken, cooked and diced or shredded

1/4 cup red onions
