Crispy potato tacos, known in Spanish as “Taquitos Dorados de Papa”, are one of the most popular dishes, loved by young and old. You don’t need many ingredients to make them, and they can even be prepared ahead of time and reheated the oven. They’re usually eaten for dinner time, and are a very popular meal during lent, when some families restrain from eating meat.
I know that many of my readers, like myself, will have fond memories of their mom or grandma making “taquitos de papa”, either folded or rolled tortillas filled with the creaminess of the potatoes. Do you remember those times? When you couldn’t wait for the tacos to cool down just a little to take the first bite? I hope you make this recipe and also enjoy the power of potatoes, which are rich in potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and iron.
