Tacos Dorados de Papa (Potato Fried Tacos)

My sister Sonia is the eldest and therefor we think she is the expert in my family to do some dishes, like this one, I remember when I tried them, I thought, “wow! So good for a veggie option”

So here is the recipe, it is a very easy recipe and the ingredients are very simple, so there is no excuse of not doing these mouthwatering tacos!

Serves 4

Prep 15 min

Cook 30 min


  • 2 large potatoes
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup rapeseed oil
  • 1 tbsp butter (optional)
  • 1/2 head shredded lettuce
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • 1 avocado chopped
  • Fresh cheese or crumble feta
  • Sour cream
  • Spicy salsa (optional)


Boil the potatoes with skin tone m until they are cook, it takes around 15 to 20 min, to make sure they are cook, pick them with a fork, leave them on the side to cool down a bit.

While the potatoes are cooking, prepare all the vegetables and have them ready to garnish the tacos.

Once the potatoes are cool down a bit, peel them and mash them very smoothly, add some butter, but this is optional, if you don’t want to add butter add some salt, then warm the tortillas and scoop one table spoon of mashed potato into a tortilla and fold it in half, do the same with all and in a large frying pan put the oil to heat and fry the tacos, 2 to 3 min on each side, they just have to be golden and crunchy. Take the tacos and put them to drain the oil. Garnish them with the vegetables and enjoy!
