Those look absolutely amazing. I have yet to find a taco recipe that I didn’t love. I’m going to try to make this when the grandkids come to visit.


Sounds delish and very filling. Corn tortillas, mash and veggies, that should def stick to the stomach!


This looks good. I always appreciate simple but good recipes that keep my family and myself full.

I love potatoes very much. So I will give this a try because it looks so tasty and crispy. Thanks for sharing!


Hi! Can these be made without oil? Think they could be baked crispy and taste just as good? Thanks!

Do you add anything (seasoning) to the potatoes?
