Spicy Potato Soft Tacos -- Crispy, oven-baked potatoes with a spicy cilantro sriracha lime sauce for the perfect homemade soft tacos.
Serves: 4 tacos
Taco Fillings
  • 1 Russet potato, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cajun seasoning, to taste
  • lettuce, salsa, avocado, cheese by choice
  • tortillas
Spicy Sauce
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1-2 tablespoons sriracha
  • ½ tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • ½ tablespoon lime juice, freshly squeezed
Crispy Potatoes
  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.
  2. Rinse cubed potatoes in cold water several times until water is clear.
  3. In a microwave safe large bowl, place potatoes and cover with water (about an inch over).
  4. Cover with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in the top.
  5. Microwave on high power for about 5 minutes. You want a knife to just pass through when poked. They shouldn't be too soft, though.
  6. Drain water completely.
  7. In a bowl, drizzle olive oil and seasonings on potatoes.
  8. Use a wooden spoon to stir the potatoes. This will create a rough texture that will aid in the crisping. (See the image in the blog post for an example.)
  9. On a paper-lined baking sheet, spread potatoes out in single layer.
  10. Bake for 15 minutes, flip, bake an additional ~10 minutes until golden and crispy.
  1. For sauce, combine sour cream, sriracha, lime juice and cilantro. Set aside.
Finish Tacos
  1. In tortilla, add warm, crispy potatoes. Top with toppings and spicy sauce.
  2. Enjoy!
