Golden Potato Tacos

Golden Potato Tacos


  • Golden Potatoes: Wash thoroughly and place them in a large pot. Cover with water and boil until tender. Transfer to a plate or bowl and let them cool slightly until they can be handled without burning. Peel and mash with a potato masher.
  • Cheese: Add to the mashed potatoes and season to taste. Mix well and set aside.

Making the Tacos:

Heat the tortillas in a skillet until soft enough to fold easily. Cover with a napkin to keep warm. Place an open tortilla on a flat surface, add a spoonful of the potato mixture, spreading it evenly in the center. Fold the tortilla into a crescent shape, pressing gently to ensure the tortilla adheres to the potatoes. Once all tortillas are prepared, refrigerate them to firm up, making them easier to fry.

Making the Sauce:

Boil tomatoes, onions, garlic, and serrano chili in water until the skins of the tomatoes start to peel. Blend the tomatoes and water until smooth, seasoning with a pinch of salt. In a small saucepan, heat oil, then add the sauce and simmer for half a minute. Pour in an additional cup of boiling water and simmer on low for five minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Frying the Tacos:

Prepare a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry 3-4 tacos at a time on both sides until golden and crispy. Transfer to the plate with paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining tacos.


Arrange the golden tacos on plates, garnishing with lettuce, radishes, avocado, and a drizzle of sauce. Top with fresh cheese and cream. Serve immediately. Enjoy sharing this delightful recipe!
