READY IN: 30mins


  • 1
    (20 ounce) bag Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes with Onion
  • 1
    red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1
    (1 1/2 ounce) packet taco seasoning or 2 -3 teaspoons ground cumin
  • garlic salt, to taste
  • 1 -2
    tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 12 -18
    corn tortillas (I like white)
  • 1
    (16 ounce) fat free refried black beans, heated (optional)
  • 3
    tomatoes, chopped
  • 1
    bunch green onion, sliced
  • 14
    head cabbage or 1/4 head lettuce, sliced thinly
  • 1
    bunch cilantro, chopped
  • lemon wedge, to serve (especially good squeezed over cabbage and cilantro)
  • cheese, of choice (we had a choice of shredded colby or jack, crumbled feta and crumbled goat cheese)
  • sour cream, to serve
  • salsa, to serve
  • hot sauce, to serve (We love Tapatio)


  • 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.
