Has anyone made potato tacos?

I'm making a vegan dinner tonight for some friends of mine. Potato tacos with the trimmings: guacamole, pico de gallo, shredded red cabbage.. and a black bean and corn red lentil salad.

I'm just not sure how to actually cook the potatoes for the inside of tacos.. I would love for them to be crispy and golden without using too much oil. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  • Yes, I've had potato tacos, and many of the restaurants here serve them. I use baked potatoes, thencube them and fry them with just a touch of oil in a very hot skillet. Another vegan taco I like is soyrizo and potato tacos....yummy! Also, potato and pinto bean tacos.

  • You could bake them. bake until cooked in the middle, then stick them in the broiler or kick up the heat a bit to get them crunchy on the outside and then soft on the inside.

  • We use a cheese shredder to shred the potatoes and pan fry them with the refried beans.

    Potato can be added as a filler to ground beef tacos too. Makes the meat go farther.

  • I've never even heard of them. What do you do with them? Just season them however, or do you add taco seasoning?

  • I'm going to season them with garlic olive oil, minced garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt & pepper. Just use them in place of meat in regular tacos. :)

  • Never heard of potato tacos, but you could also partially bake or parboil the potatoes, then quick fry them at the end so they get crispy.
