I was getting tired of all the potato salads. Yummy as they all are, they all started to taste the same. So, I came up with a twist on potato salads when my oldest granddaughter Isis said," grandma, you should make a potato salad that tasetes like a taco." Great idea! And so I did! I think it DOES taste like a taco, but better!
