Po'Tacos from Weelicious



I've been waiting for months to share this potato tacos recipe (aka: Po-Tacos!) Weelicious Menus subscribers have been getting the opportunity to exclusively try some of my favorite new recipes before I bring them here to the Weelicious website, but man it's tough not to share them immediately as this is such a good one!

My friend, Joanna, and her family came up with the idea for this Potaco recipe and she sent me the greatest image of her devouring one (you can see it below). It's such a brilliant simple concept, using potato skins in lieu of shells or tortillas to make tacos. I mean, what's not to love about it? They're inexpensive and the filling possibilities are limitless: pesto and Greek yogurt, chili, Lazy BBQ Chicken and sauce, and so much more! Most important, Potacos are a ton of fun to eat. Just see for yourself.

Forget taco shells or tortillas, it's all about Potacos!

    That brown thing covering the potato is the shell or something you put to covering it, at first i thought it was the potato shell but the one in orange color looks like a pumpkin and the shell is not like that, im from argentina and we don´t have any vegetable with that kind of shell. Thanks =)

      These photos have both russet potatoes and sweet potatoes in them! The brown thing is the potato skins!

    My older girls made these for “Kids Cook Night” and they were a big hit! Really love them with a sweet potato, too. Thanks for the fun variation on our regular Taco Night!

    Hi, I had emailed you yesterday on another post and can’t remember what recipe it was under, so I am emailing again (sorry) I was wondering why a lot of your recipes don’t include the nutritional info anymore. I am Type 2 diabetic and the info is very helpful. I would love it for the po tacos. Thanks, Donna

      Hi Donna! We do include nutritional information, but there has been a bit of lag between our two databases. We are working on getting them synced up!

    Is mozzarella a good sub for the manchego (w/pesto and yogurt)? Thanks!

    A staple in our house when we have too many potatoes, we just call them Stuffed Potatoes! They are a great way to use leftovers.

    Wow, great recipe! We love sweet and regular potatoes and this is going to be a great addition to our meals. I am thinking to fill them with pieces of chicken, olives, cherry tomatoes, and avocado. Yum!
