Plus, the versatility of the recipe allows for various cheese alternatives and optional epazote leaves, catering to a wide range of dietary preferences.

How to Serve

Serve these tacos hot, garnished with extra queso fresco and a side of your favorite salsa or guacamole. They pair wonderfully with a fresh cilantro lime rice or a simple salad to round out the meal.

How to Store

The potato and poblano filling can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a skillet or microwave before assembling your tacos. It’s best to crisp the tortillas just before serving to maintain their texture.


  • Char the poblano peppers over an open flame or under a broiler until the skin is blackened, then place in a bag to steam before peeling. This enhances their smoky flavor.
  • Use olive oil for crisping the tortillas for a healthier option than traditional frying.
  • Adjust the amount of cheese to your preference, but remember, a little goes a long way in adding creamy texture and salty flavor.
