Skillet Potato Tacos

So I mentioned that my  Vegan Blueberry Banana Bread was the first recipe I created after going vegan; I guess that would make these Skillet Potato Tacos the second (and I’ve totally lost count after those).  I’ve been making these often for over two years now and never made a point to write it down, take notes, and time the cooking until recently.

I’m not gonna lie; before I actually wrote the recipe down I never cooked them exactly the same way twice, but I think by trying several different ways to cook these I worked out all the kinks and also found the easiest, most tasty way to make them.

These Skillet Potato Tacos are:


Slightly Spicy





Perfect for breakfast, lunch or brunch!

Best part of all this recipe calls for less than 10- Ingredients and can be made in about 25 minutes. I hope you love this recipe as much as my family and I do!

Also; here is my most favorite homemade flour tortillas recipe, just in case you want to take your tacos to the next level.

    1. Thank you! I actually got the idea to use potatoes in tacos from a Tex Mex restaurant in Austin that has a Potato Rajas taco plate. 🙂
