Top Review by Robyn

My niece is dating a boy who's mom is from Mexico and she makes potato tacos and she sent 2 home for me once and I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Well these are very close, there is still something missing and she won't tell me! but these are very very good. My niece eats them like his family does, with mayonaise, I almost wonder if that is the missing ingredient in the potatoes. Thanks for posting this easy and really good recipe. My family has decided we prefer these over meat tacos!
