This recipe only uses simple ingredients you can easily find in your pantry or your local grocery stores. It does not require any special ingredients. The star of this taco is the potato. In other recipes, they fry the potatoes after boiling them, but for this one, you will be mashing and mixing them with onion, red pepper, seasonings, and parmesan cheese. This will make the tacos more delicious and packed with flavors.
