Vegan Potato Tacos

Tacos were one of the first dishes for which I had to find a vegan alternative. Now, we make these potato tacos on a regular basis. Spice them up with some red pepper flakes or hot sauce. Add avocado if you want a flavor explosion.

6 tacos


  • 2 red potatoes, diced

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 yellow onion, diced

  • ½ cup frozen corn

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 6 (6 inch) corn tortillas

  • ¼ cup chopped green onions

  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro

  • 1 lime, cut into wedges


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Place potatoes in a bowl; drizzle 1 tablespoon oil on top, add garlic powder, and mix to coat. Lay out potatoes on a baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 30 minutes.

  4. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add red bell pepper, onion, corn, jalapeno, salt, and black pepper; cook and stir until vegetables are slightly soft, about 10 minutes.

  5. Heat a griddle over medium heat. Cook tortillas, flipping halfway, until evenly warmed, 2 to 3 minutes. Divide tortillas among serving plates; fill with the baked potatoes and sauteed corn mixture. Top tacos with green onions and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
