These crispy potato tacos (tacos de papa) are filled with potatoes and lightly fried to create the perfect crispy crunchy outside and creamy interior.
Let’s get started!
- corn tortillas - oil - potatoes - butter - garlic powder - ground cumin - chili powder - toppings
Warm up the corn tortillas before assembling the tacos to prevent them from cracking.
Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add the potatoes and boil for 25 minutes. Drain and transfer them to a large bowl. Melt butter in the pot used for cooking the potatoes add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add seasonings to large bowl with potatoes and mash until they are smooth. Set aside. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
Spread ¼ cup of the mashed potatoes on one side of the tortillas and fold them to create tacos. Fry each taco until golden, flipping the taco carefully with a small spatula.
Place tacos on a plate covered with paper towels to soak up any excess oil. Stuff or top the tacos with your favorite toppings!
