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! MORE + LESS -
