Crispy Potato Tacos


Yield: 8 Tacos

Ingredients:

2 Large Russet Potatoes 3/4 cup Sour Cream 2 cloves Minced Garlic 1/2 tsp Cumin Salt, to taste 1/2 tsp Oregano 8 Corn Tortillas Oil for Frying Optional Toppings: Sour Cream Salsa Cotija Cheese Cilantro

Instructions:

Thoroughly wash the potatoes & peel the skin off. Cut into smaller pieces and place in a pot of cold water. Bring to a boil over medium high heat and allow potatoes to cook until they are soft. Place softened potatoes into a large bowl.

Mix in sour cream, cumin, salt and pepper and mash until well combined. Wrap the tortillas in a damp towel or paper towel and microwave for 15-20 seconds, so they don’t break.

On half of the tortilla, place about 1 Tbsp. of the potato mixture and spread it around. Fold the tortilla in half and repeat with the rest of the tortillas. Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in a pan. Carefully, place the potato tacos in the pan, allowing them to cook for about 2 minutes on each side.

Once they have developed a golden color, remove from oil and strain excess oil off on a paper towel. Serve with your favorite toppings & enjoy! Recipe by: Carrie Hildebrand
