Potatoes are life, am I right? This potato tacos recipe is nothing short of fantastic! The potatoes are crispy and flavourful, and they’d also make a great dish for brunch!
They’re kind of like hash browns, minus the fried, and with far less oil.
If you’re avoiding oil entirely, you may use some water or broth instead. Just keep an eye on them while cooking to make sure they don’t burn.
How to make potato tacos
Start by peeling your potatoes and then dicing them into roughly half inch cubes.
Just slice the potatoes into half inch slices and then push them through your cutter to make the cubes. If you don’t have a tool to help with this, you may use a knife.
Place your cubed potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Then add the oil (if using) and all the seasoning on top. Mix well until the potatoes are evenly coated.
Arrange your potatoes in a single layer on your baking tray, lined with parchment paper. Try and space them apart a little, for maximum crispiness.
Bake for about 15 minutes, then flip your potatoes and return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
I like my potatoes extra crispy, so I leave them for the full 15 minutes, but watch carefully towards the end of cooking time to ensure they don’t burn.
While the potatoes are baking, prepare any other toppings you wish to use. Then assemble your tacos with a generous amount of potatoes and any other toppings as desired.

How long do potato tacos keep?
Like any tacos, the leftovers are best stored separately. The potatoes may lose crispiness after storing in the fridge, but you may heat them in the oven or toaster oven. Or in a skillet with a touch of oil to crisp them up again.
