Crispy Potato Soft Taco

I wanted to re-share with all of you my favorite potato tacos. They are my homemade version of my favorite guilty pleasure, Taco Bell. I made them yesterday for lunch…and dinner! Oh I just can not eat enough of them! I made a midnight run to the grocery store last night (while the kiddos were sleeping, can I get an “amen!”?) and on my list was more ranch dressing, we finished it all with the tacos during the day. I needed to replenish my stock so when my urge for these Crispy Potato Soft Tacos strikes again I’m prepared!

Hope you guys enjoy these as much as I do!!

Here ‘s my old post:

We like to eat out. Often. At local restaurants. Not usually chains. Not usually fast food. However, confession time. I do love Taco Bell. In fact, it’s really the only fast food restaurant that I like. I’m obsessed with their Baja Blast – and I don’t even drink pop (I grew up in the North, ‘pop’ is just apart of my vocabulary!) Yet when I eat it I feel guilty because I know how much filler is in the meat, which in turn makes me want to barf! (sorry, but it does).

One glorious day while filling my Baja Blast cravings I noticed on the $0.89 menu something called Crispy Potato Soft Taco.  I decided I’d give it a try since it sounded like it was meatless. Score! It was!…and now I’m obsessed with it right along with the Baja Blasts! (you will probably find a wrapper in my car if you searched. Any takers on coming to clean my car?!?!)

This afternoon it was raining and I didn’t feel like loading the kiddos up in the car JUST to get one of those suckers, so I decided to try my hand at a Crispy Potato Soft Taco. Here’s how it turned out!


Dice potatoes into 1/2" or so pieces
Heat EVOO in a skillet
Throw your potatoes into the EVOO once it is hot. Then season with salt, pepper, oregano, parsley and garlic (I used garlic salt) *Amounts are based on your preference
Fry the potatoes in the EVOO. Resist the urge to turn them over as soon as they start to turn brown, you want them crispy!
Nice and crunchy. I laid mine out on a paper towel to soak up the extra EVOO
On a warmed tortilla layer lettuce, potatoes, a little Ranch dressing and cheese.

Then do as I did…inhale this taco! They were so delicious that I even made them again for dinner! 🙂

Give it a try and let me know what you think!
