I have a thing for potatoes, and bread, and spring rolls--sorry, I tend to lose focus. We're talking about potatoes, right? Yes, potatoes. I have a thing for potatoes in tacos and with avocado-tomato-onion relish. It's so simple it's ridiculous--which makes it that much more delicious! Enjoy.
Spiced Potato Tacos with Avocado-Tomato-Onion Relish
Potato Seasoning Mix
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp oregano
1/2 Tbsp paprika
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
Directions: Combine all the seasonings and mix well. I usually quadruple the amounts so that I have taco seasoning on hand whenver I need it
4 cups diced red potatoes (1" chunks)
1 Tbsp taco seasoning
1/4 cup oil of choice (I use canola...and you can use more oil or less...I'm still not the oil police)
Directions: Heat oven to 425 degrees. Place oil on cookie sheet, add potatoes, sprinkle 1 Tbsp seasoning on top of potatoes and mix with hands to make sure the seasoning gets on all of the potatoes. Spread out into a single layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
2 ripe avocadoes, diced
3 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
1/4 cup packed cilantro, chopped
1 Tbsp orange juice (if you don't have orange juice use lemon, but not lime)
1/4tsp + 1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground coriander (not cumin, trust me)
Directions: Combine avocado, tomato, and onions in a bowl and toss. Sprinkled on salt, coriander and orange juice and toss again. Finally sprinkle on cilantro and toss a final time. Try not to eat the bowl. I sometimes skip the potatoes all together and use this relish as my taco filler.
Taco Shells of choice (I used corn taco shells. I sprinkle them with water and then wrap with foil and bake at 260 degrees for 10 minutes. What I prefer to do is fry them up in a little canola oil because they taste better that way, but I have to wear a swimsuit in July, so...)
Then what, Reine? Do you need me to walk you through taco assembly? I didn't think so. Side note, I put my potatoes in first and drizzle a little sriracha on before adding the avocado relish.
You have been fed.
