I remember my mother making these potato tacos when I was growing up. We loved them! And they're great with mashed potatoes.

Ingredients
  • 1 (3.25 ounce) package instant mashed potatoes (such as Idahoan™ Signature Russets Mashed Potatoes)
  • ½ cup diced onions
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • ½ cup vegetable oil for frying, plus more as needed
  • Shredded lettuce
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • 4 tablespoons Shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese blend
  • Salsa
Directions
  1. 1. Prepare mashed potatoes according to package directions.
  2. 2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sautee diced onions in oil until tender and translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add cooked mashed potatoes and season with salt and pepper.
  3. 3. Place tortillas on a plate. Heat in microwave until pliable, 15 to 20 seconds.
  4. 4. Place 1/4 cup of potato mixture in each tortilla, fold in half and secure each end with toothpicks.
