Tips and Substitutes to make the BEST Vegan Potato Tacos:
I highly recommend Yukon Gold potatoes because of the amazing buttery texture but almost any potato will do! I have used red potatoes and they came out amazing as well.
If you are looking to reduce your carbohydrates due to medical conditions but still want to enjoy this flavorful dish, try cauliflower, diced carrots or tofu. You can either do half potatoes and half (cauliflower/carrot/tofu) or completely sub it out.
Try boiling the potatoes, mashing them and then adding all the ingredients! It’s actually delicious and I highly recommend.
Air frying is also an option if you want to keep them nice and crispy. Air-fry at 375 for 15-18 minutes flipping halfway through.
I’ve never tried baking the potatoes for this specific recipe but you can totally do it!
The seasonings are quite simple in this recipe to enjoy the full flavors from the chorizo and chipotle.
I typically get my vegan chorizo from Trader Joe’s (my favorite!), but they also have it at Safeway and other large grocery stores. If you want to make it yourself I highly recommend this Vegan Chorizo recipe from Dora’s Table.
If you are sensitive to spice I recommend using less chipotle adobo sauce or substituting with a simple canned tomato sauce/roasted and chopped tomatoes with chiles.
You can either choose to eat these with a soft tortilla or crisp them up.
To make them crispy, heat them up first to avoid the tortilla from breaking. Add the potato filling, fold tortilla to create taco and then brush lightly with avocado oil. Add to griddle and fry for 3 minutes on each side or until crispy.
