How to Make Irish Tacos Indeed!


  • 1Note: 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.
  • 2Heat 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.
  • 3Spoon the mashed potatoes into the tortillas. Add the garnishes!
