Tacos de Papa con Carne 

This is hands down my favorite comfort food that reminds me so much of my childhood! So easy to make and I promise it will become a family favorite ! 

3 medium sized potatoes 

1 pound ground beef 

1 onion, diced 

2 teaspoons sea salt 

1 teaspoon oregano 

1 teaspoon cumin 

1 teaspoon ground pepper 

1 teaspoon sweet paprika 

1 cup shredded Monterey Jack 

12-14 corn tortillas 

Enough oil to coat bottom of fry pan 

  • Peel and cut potatoes, place in Pot and cover with water.  Bring to a boil and cook until soft. 
  • Heat a seperate skillet and add the ground beef, onions, spices, and salt. Cook until Beef is browned and onion is tender. 
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, pull out of water and allow to cool. 
  • Mash the potatoes, I use a ricer, add to meat mixture along with shredded cheese and set aside. 
  • Heat corn tortillas over open flan or skillet to soften one or two at a time. 
  • Fill tortilla 1/4 cup of mixture, fold over and hold taco together with wooden toothpick. 
  • Make all the tacos before you start frying. 
  • I don’t like to deep fry so I just pan fry with a smaller amount of oil. 
  • Don’t crowd them and flip only once until crispy and golden brown. 
  • I place them a little elevated to drain any excess oil. 
  • I hope the pictures help!
