So many authentic mexican restaurants put potato in their taco meat. This looks really good.

I'm not sure if this recipe works as described, I think some ingredients may have been omitted from the list by mistake. I'd probably boil or at least partially cook the potatoes better than this method or else they may not be thoroughly cooked. I think you meant to put taco seasoning in the directions as it's pictured after the fact otherwise, it wouldn't look as pictured. Looks like a good easy recipe otherwise. Spicy meat and potatoes sounds like a great combo for tacos !

You can make it with just oregano and cumin, or use a package of taco seasoning. I've never had an issue with the potatoes not being cooked. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

I'm definitely gonna use this, it's genius level simple yet makes so much sense for a hearty combo!
