Ingredients for Spicy Potato Soft Tacos

  • Wheat or corn tortilla - Wheat tortillas tend to be more flexible while corn ones tend to be a bit more brittle. You can also use hard taco shells if you like (of course, they won’t be “soft” any more if you do, but that’s OK).
  • Iceberg lettuce - You could use shredded romaine or other types of lettuce if you prefer.
  • Shredded cheddar cheese  - If you have a preferred Mexican-inspired cheese, you can use that instead or use a cheese sauce.
  • Breakfast Potatoes - You can make your own and use leftovers or use premade versions you can find in your local store.

For garnish, we use both finely chopped cilantro and our delicious avocado crema for garnish.
