Beef and Potato Tacos
Growing up, potato and ground beef tacos were a favorite among my siblings. To mix things up, I make different salsas each time. Today I made a flavorful avocado and jalapeno salsa that tasted amazing with the homemade taco shells. The idea of mixing potato and beef is to keep the meat from escaping the taco but it also adds phenomenal flavor. So grab the Coronas, invite some friends, and make these today!
1 lb. ground beef
12 corn tortillas
1 large potato
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1/2 tbsp. onion powder
1/2 tbsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil for frying
1 1/4 cup water
3 tbsp. fresh, chopped cilantro
1 tbsp. chopped chives
1 large garlic clove
salt to taste
1.) Rinse, peel and chop potato into small cubes. In a large frying pan, add about 3 tbsp.
of vegetable oil and cook potatoes, covered, until soft. (Use low to medium heat to
keep the potatoes from browning.
2.) Once potatoes are soft, add ground beef. Add seasonings and cook until beef browns.
mash the beef and potatoes until both are well incorporated.
3.) In a separate pan, add about one cup of vegetable oil and heat. Once the oil is hot, place
corn tortillas in oil and fry each side for 20 seconds. Then, with the help of tongs, fold
tortilla in half and fry each side for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. (While frying each
side, use the tongs to hold open the tortilla, about 1 inch.)
4.) Place taco shells on paper towel to drain excess oil.
Mix all ingredients in blender of food processor and serve immediately.
