I have had a little bit of an obsession lately. With tacos. Seriously. I cannot get enough of them. I have a few recipes for them waiting in the wings for you all, but I’m at the point where I could make a new taco recipe once or twice a week and be totally fine with it.
It doesn’t help that I feel like no matter the line I stand in at any grocery store, there are pictures of tacos staring back to me. Maybe it’s because Cinco de Mayo just passed, or maybe the magazine execs are just going off of the fact that people love Mexican inspired food. And in my opinion, you just can’t go wrong when you cook up some delicious ingredients and then throw them into a tortilla or a taco shell. Crowd pleasing. Kid pleasing. Me pleasing.
These tacos are a great way to change things up just a little bit. They are sausage and potato tacos. This is definitely not a combo that I would have ever thought would be good together in a taco, but let me tell you. Sausage and potatoes were meant to go together in a taco. Throw on some of the fresh salsa and you have got a pretty perfect taco.
These tacos make me want to turn every night into a taco night!
