Directions See How It's Made
- Spray oil a large skillet and heat over medium heat.
- Add bag of potatoes and bell pepper and toss with seasonings.
- Put lid on and cook for about 15 minutes, turning every few minutes, until heated through.
- Remove lid, sprinkle with lemon juice and pan-fry for a few more minutes.
- In the meantime, chop up toppings and lay out on a platter and bowls on the table.
- Heat Tortillas in desired method. We heat them over the gas stove flame until they get some brown spots. You could also fry them, if desired. Lay in a tortilla warmer or plate and place on table.
- Place prepared potatoes in a bowl alongside other choices and everyone can build their own tacos. Enjoy!
- We had some without beans and some with beans smeared on the tortilla and then the potatoes and other toppings over them. Yummy both ways.
