How to Make Irish Tacos Indeed!


  1. Note: I candied the bacon by drizzling some real maple syrup on top, sprinkled with chopped pecans and baked at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.

    Steam or fry the tortillas.
  2. Heat up the leftover mashed potatoes. OR, we used leftover roasted potatoes which I warmed up in a little bit of oil in a skillet. I added the frozen green peas and scallions the last 1 minute of cooking.
  3. Spoon the mashed potatoes into the tortillas. Add the garnishes!
