When I was younger, my sister, Danielle, went to dinner at her boyfriend’s house. When she came home, she told my mom and dad that his mom had made tacos for dinner, but that they didn’t make taco the way our family made tacos. They made their tacos with potato in them.
This was the first time my parents had heard of such a thing…potatoes in tacos? My parents decided to give it a try and then it became a thing…from there on out, my parents always made our taco meat with potatoes. I have no doubt that it probably caught on because it would stretch the meat and feed our big family for less money, but no matter the saving, the concept worked and it was good.
Today, this is how I make our tacos too. Beef and Potato Tacos are a quick and easy meal — and a definite family favorite.
To make your own Beef and Potato Tacos, you will need 1 pound of ground beef, plus Ore-Ida Hash Brown Potatoes. We like onion in our tacos, so we also use that, but you can leave it out if you prefer.
To make your Beef and Potato Tacos, cook your ground beef with the onion in a skillet until done. After your ground beef is cooked, you will stir in your hashbrowns. I like using the Ore-Ida Hash Brown potatoes because they heat up fast in the meat, saving you time getting dinner on the table.
Next, add your taco seasoning and once everything is all combine and hot, it’s ready to serve. Use your beef and potato taco filling to fill tortillas. You can use either flour or corn tortillas, or even pre-made taco shells.
Top with toppings such as shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, salsa, sour cream, tomatoes, and more.
