    Can crack one egg on the potato mixture, mix well. This is to make the potatoes stick Together better. Also this is how my grandma made them.

    Looks like flour tortillas were used here in the picture but both corn and flour would be good. Flour tortillas make these a little like potato perogies that also have cheese in them. I would not use garlic because garlic is normally not used in traditional Mexican cooking. I love the way this recipe is just as it is written.

    I use a mixture of Cotija and monterey jack and I made salsa verde. First time I've made them! Bomb.com

    Having Mexican parents my mom would make these for us... more so during lent. Every time we had company and we had this, people who make a weird face and say "potato tacos?" However; once they tried them there was no going back. My mom does them differently. potatoes (russet) garlic powder onion powder pepper grated cotija cheese and oaxaca cheese salt Mixed all those ingredients and leave potatoes a little lumpy. Heat up corn tortillas, put filling in and fry. Must eat hot. Once on your plate, mom would have a platter of lettuce or cabbage (whatever was available in the fridge), tomatoes, onion, sour cream or crema, and home made salsa made in a mortar. Simple and super inexpensive. The cheese makes the filling stick and not fall out as sometimes this tends to happen if you mash the potatoes when hot.
