These mashed potato taco's were delicious !!!! My 2 yr. old kept saying "mommy these are so yummy". They were really easy to prepare and a lot less messy to eat than regular taco's, because you mix the beef in with the potato mixture the filling doesn't fall out. I also added some diced onion into the beef/potato mixture. Great way to sneak in some veggies without your kids putting their noses up at the food! Will definitly be making this dish often.
