You can use just about any flavor of leftover mashed potatoes for these babies! The garnishes are given only as suggestions as the tacos are perfectly delicious all on their own! Use mini-tortilla or tostada shells for a fun appetizer offering. What are you waiting for? PS>Kids love tacos de papas!

I always make these and kids love them. I usually add a bit of cheese to smashed potatoes, stuff corn toritilla, roll it up and fry to crisp. Then I serve with Mexican Crema and Queso Fresco to make it even more delish. Always a hit.
