The potato onion poblano chiles mixture is absolutely delicious. I did season it with salt pepper and garlic powder. Being of Mexican heritage I can say that I didn't really care for it in my tacos and it's not something I grew up eating. I will make the potato mixture again but as a side dish not in my tacos.

I doubled the amount of steak and grilled it. I felt like the dish could have used more seasoning maybe some cumin red pepper flakes or something but overall like the concept of including potatoes. I would make this dish again experimenting with additional spices. Read More

Fantastic! We will definitely make again. There's a lot of heat in the recipe so I think next time I'd use some cold salsa or sour cream. Will just cool off the bites a bit. Otherwise excellent. Read More

We enjoyed these but I felt like there was something missing. Not sure what the something is but something. I really enjoyed the potato/onion/pepper combo (which I seasoned with salt & pepper) and I think it would also make a really great side dish for Mexican-inspired meals. For the steak I added some cumin and instead of using chili powder I used ground chipotle chili peppers. This gave it a great flavor and a little heat. After rubbing the seasonings onto the steak I lightly brushed both sides with olive oil and cooked it to medium on the grill. Read More

This turned out pretty good and was easy to prepare. I think it could have used a tad more seasoning. Maybe some cumin? I really enjoyed the potatoes being inside the taco and this is one I will do again. Read More
