Expert Tips

You can also garnish with cheddar cheese and sour cream.

Saying that my fiancé and my son are potato lovers is a massive understatement. Those two could eat potatoes all day long! So it would seem right to think they would love anything I make with potatoes, right? Not at all! Besides being spud-super-fans, they are also potato snobs! I feel the pressure; basically, I’ve created potato monsters! It’s funny because out of all the potato recipes I cook for them, one of their favorite is the very basic but appetizing: potato tacos. They go absolutely freaking bananas for them! The great thing is that I don’t even have to work all that hard at it, and every time I make them, I end up as their hero! The potato taco is the most popular of vegetarian tacos. To me, they only go well with hard-shell tacos. Since I use a mashed–like potato, the main ingredient is already soft so it doesn’t really go well with a soft tortilla. Also, almost any salsa, red or green, will go well with these tacos! Give them a go and become your family’s own hero!

Directions

  • 1 Heat tortillas over an open flame to soften them.
  • 2 In a large bowl, mix mashed potatoes, onion, and tomatoes.
  • 3 Fill the center of each tortilla with 2 heaping tablespoons of mashed potato mixture.
  • 4 Fold the tortilla and close with a toothpick on each side to keep it secured.
  • 5 In a large frying pan over medium heat, add in vegetable oil and allow to get hot.
  • 6 Add in a few tacos at a time. Fry on each side for 7 to 10 minutes or until crispy.
  • 7 Repeat until all tacos are fried.
  • 8 Remove taco from oil and allow to drain on a paper towel lined plate.
  • 9 Garnish with red or green salsa. Serve and enjoy!
