Soft Tacos

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by cooking_geek

I used instant mash potatoes, but if you have the real thing on hand use that! The mashed potatoes are an interesting twist to the standard taco.

These soft tacos were quite good. However, they could have been a bit more spicy. I served them with spicy salsa, guacomole, and sour cream. When making these again, I don't think I will add the simmered chopped lettuce because I could not taste it, but I will add more green onions and possibly a bit of shredded cheese. Made for My 3 Chefs Fall 2008.
