Make potato taquitos, inspired by tacos dorados de papa. These taquitos are filled with mashed potato, bacon, onions and spices. Fry them and serve with sour cream or my spicy jalapeño salsa for a quick meal that everyone loves.


Red potato 1 Pound
Cooked bacon bits/Corn kernels 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Onion 1 Small , diced
Butter 1 Tablespoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Pepper 1/2 Teaspoon
Dried oregano 1/2 Teaspoon
Corn tortillas 8
Oil 1 Cup (16 tbs) (For deep frying)
Green salsa 1 Cup (16 tbs) (for serving)



1.Halve potatoes and put into a pot with enough water to cover. Bring to boil over high and boil for about 8-10 minutes or until soft. Drain.

2.Mash potatoes, skin and all, with remaining ingredients (except tortillas and oil).

3.Soften tortillas. I wrap a stack with a damp paper towel and mirowave for a minute, then flip and micro another 30 seconds or so until soft and steamy. If you don't like microwaves, you can soften them individually on a lightly oiled griddle for a few seconds on each side.

4.Roll about cup of the filling into each tortilla. Seal with a toothpick if need be. Lay all rolled taquitos on a plate, seam-side down.

5.Heat inch of oil over medium-high until shimmering. Fry taquitos for a minute on each side to get them golden and crispy.


6.Drain and serve with condiments.
