potatoes, peeled and chopped
chopped green onions
1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese
1 (12 ounce) package
Ranch-style salad dressing
My mom used to make some tacos similar to this when I was growing up except she used real Mexican Cheese & she sauteed white onion & added it to the potato mixture instead of putting green onions in them. I love these tacos. We also put lettuce in them and ate them with Salsa and Parm. Cheese. Salt & Pepper should be to taste too.
These weren't quite as yummy as I was hoping. The potatoes needed a little more flavor, were a bit bland. If I were to make these again, I would add a little garlic, a little butter, lots of salt and pepper, and maybe even some chili powder to the potato mixture. The ranch dressing was good with them. I will try these again sometime, with just a few tweaks. Thanks for the recipe.
I do something like this ,but I dip the tortillas in a red sauce then fry them. I serve it with shredded cabbage and onions and a lemon to squeeze over the top
Potato tacos are an old favorite in my family that I have not thought to make until I heard XrayBarb talking about them. Now I am all excited to make them, which I did. The kids were IN LOVE! This is a simple dish that is Simply Delicious! You can feed a boat load of people w/o breaking the bank YYAA. My kind of meal. Thank You Yvonne I will remember these and keep them in circulation.
This tasted like a perogie--and it was delicious! I used leftover mashed potatoes and simply reheated them in the microwave with some shredded cheddar cheese. I spread it to within an inch of the edge of the tortilla, and I fried it with cooking spray. The results were more than satisfying. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
These are really pretty good. A perfect use for leftover mashed potatoes. My son gobbles them up. Don't make too many at once though because they are not very good reheated.
I didn't really care for this, but my son liked it. After reading the other reviews, I decided to add 2 tsp. of powdered ranch salad dressing to the potatoes for more flavor and used much less oil to fry them in. I've never had potato tacos before, and I didn't really like the combination of the corn tortilla and the potato. Liked the potato mixture with the ranch dressing, though, so might make that again.
Great idea!! I actually turned this idea into Shepherd's Pie tacos. They came out well, but I feel they would have tasted better baked after cooking in the skillet.
