Expert Tips

Cheddar cheese is a nice addition to this taco.

Anybody who follows my food adventures here at Qué Rica Vida knows that I often talk about my beloved, adopted city of Mexicali, Mexico. Mostly because the food rocks down there! About ten years ago, during the fall, I was there for the big Fiesta Del Sol (Festival of the Sun.) It is basically the biggest carnival I've ever seen in my life. It's a huge party featuring loads of rides, food, drinks and bands. There is so much to see, hear and taste! It was at this wonderful festival where I first tasted shrimp potato tacos. It was love at first bite! I've been making them at home ever since. I constantly switch up on the salsas I put on them to vary them up a bit. If you're looking for a new food-addiction in your life, go ahead and make these!

Substitute fried crisp potatoes with mashed potatoes.

Directions

  • 1 In a small pot filled with water to the halfway mark, boil potato for 10 minutes.
  • 2 Drain potato and set aside.
  • 3 In a large frying pan over a medium high flame, add vegetable oil and allow to get hot.
  • 4 Add boiled potato to hot oil. Sprinkle potato with salt and pepper. Cook on each side for 10 minutes or until golden crisp.
  • 5 Three minutes before potatoes pieces are fully cooked, add in shrimp and cook until pink.
  • 6 Heat tortillas on an open flame. Fill each center with shrimp potato mixture.
  • 7 Drizzle with hot sauce. Enjoy!
