Authentic ground beef and potato tacos with hard shells.


  • 1 cube Knorr Caldo de Res Bouillon (Beef flavor Bouillon)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp ground garlic
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 small Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and shredded
  • 20 corn tortillas
  • 4 cups vegetable oil (you’ll need a high heat oil for frying)
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, washed well
  • 2 TBSP mayonnaise
  • 1 small tomato, cubed
  • 8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 small avocado, sliced
  • hot sauce or taco sauce


  1. Mix the meat with the shredded potatoes, spices, and bouillon until blended.
  2. Press about 2 TBSP of meat to one side of the corn tortilla. Form it to fit the tortilla, about 1/2″ from the edge of the tortilla. It should look like half a circle.
  3. Stack the tortilla with meat on a plate, alternating directions.
  4. Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat.
  5. Using tongs, gently hold the tortilla into the oil while it softens. Once the center of the tortilla (bottom of taco) is soft, fold it and lay the taco on it’s side in the oil.
  6. Allow the taco to cook until the tortilla looks crispy like a tortilla chip.
  7. Flip and cook the other side.
  8. Line a bread pan with paper towels.
  9. Remove the taco from the oil, tilting it sideways in the bread pan so the oil runs out of the taco down into the paper towels.
  10. Cook 3 to 4 tacos at a time until they are all cooked.
  11. Shred or thinly slice the iceberg lettuce.
  12. Add tomatoes and onion to a bowl with the lettuce.
  13. Add mayonnaise and mix well.
  14. Open a taco. Spoon in 2 TBSP of the lettuce mixture. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top. Add hot sauce or avocado if desired.
