Easy Tacos de Papa! #SaboreaTuVerano

There’s nothing worse than not knowing what to cook. Either for lunch or dinner. It’s always a constant battle with myself. What do I cook?! I easily get tired of the same old menu items we tend to eat week after week. Sometimes our budget allows for take-out, but what to cook/eat for the rest of the week? Sometimes we eat Mexican other times it’s Italian or Filipino, then more often than not, American cuisine. Then, it starts all over again. Ugh, it’s a crazy cycle that’s hard to break. Are you in the same boat?
Walmart hosted several in-store events last weekend that featured recipes made with Knorr products. I think I’ve been using Knorr products since I started to cook for my familia, almost 19 years ago! Wow, that’s a long time. I continue to use Knorr products when I cook Mexican dishes and even our absolute favorite Filipino soup. It’s a staple in our home.
One of my go-to dish, when I’m bored with the menu at home is Tacos de Papa. Potato Tacos! There are many ways to make these delicious tacos, but honestly, this is the easiest (and cheapest, under 20 bucks to make a whole tray full!) way to make a these tacos. And by easy, I mean SUPER EASY.
Easy Tacos de Papa
1 pack of your favorite corn tortillas
2 cups of cabbage or lettuce, shredded
4 cups of your favorite instant mashed potato
1/2 cup of crumbled Panela cheese
1 cup of fresh diced tomato
2 limes sliced in quarters
1 cube of Knorr Caldo de Res Bouillon (Beef flavor Bouillon)
1/2 cup of oil
Cook the mashed potatoes according to the box. Instead of adding salt to the boiling water, add 1 cube of the Knorr Caldo de Res Bouillon (Beef flavor Bouillon). Once your mashed potatoes are ready, set aside.
In a pan, on medium fire, heat your oil. Heat your tortillas in the microwave for about 20 seconds. This way the tortilla won’t break in half when you fold it.
Spread 1 heaping spoonful of mashed papas onto half of the tortilla, gently fold in half and put it in the pan to fry. Fry about 2 minutes (or less, depending on how crunchy you want your tacos!) and set on a napkin covered plate.
Once all your tacos are done, top them off with the cabbage ( or lettuce if your kids don’t like repollo!), tomatoes and the Panela cheese.
Squeeze a little lime and ¡Buen provecho!
I told you they were easy to make. I shopped at my local Walmart for all of the ingredients used. This is a recipe my mami taught me. There are different variations for Tacos de Papa. I hope you enjoy.
