Let's Talk Taco's

I love Taco's but I have never found a restaurant that serves them,
the way I like them.
So it's one "dish" I make at home because
the hubs and I really love Taco's!!
 
There's a lot of prep work...
 
and just one side dish that is a must have with Taco's,
Roasted Red Potatoes with one whole, large sweet onion,
and lots of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
I also add a few pats of butter on top!
The onions are the best part.
 
We use our "Mexican" plates.
 
Meat, Cheese, extra crunchy lettuce and a huge dollop of Sour Cream
 
We polished off all of those yummy potatoes,
I think they may have been the better then the Taco's.

Now let's talk about the leftover's!!
We had meat left over, but no potatoes.

Now lets have some fun with left-overs!
Zip open that bag of Fritos, right at the top,
leaving lot's of room for your fillings.

Add your meat and cheese, right in to the bag.

add some lettuce and sour cream,

and a fork...

and now you've got a Walking Taco!!

Thank me later, they were amazing!
Great for the big game or a kids party.
They were delish!

Love tacos, but the Mister doesn't :( I make them when the kids come home. Love your South of the boarder dishes. Perfect for a festive meal.

I love tacos and now you are making me hungry. I love the Mexican plates you served them on.
They serve walking tacos sometimes at the high school ballgames.

I like the way you think! I make similar roasted potatoes and it's the onions I like the best. I've actually thought about leaving the potatoes out but then, I love the potatoes too.

Brian King said...

I love me some tacos! I really like taco salads! I never thought of having the potatoes with them, but they look very good! I like Fritos so the walking taco would be right up my alley.

When I reached the last part of this post, Debbie, I thought you would put all the leftovers including Chios in a casserole...wonder if that would work for leftovers?
