Ancho-Spiced Pork and Potato Tacos

4 Servings

Potatoes and pork seasoned with ancho chili powder and cumin make an easy, flavorful filling for tacos. Be sure to use a nonstick skillet, as the potatoes’ starch makes them prone to sticking. If you like, offer a few of the garnishes suggested and allow diners to top their own tacos.

Quick, easy & tasty!
Such a simple recipe sure made for some delicious tacos. I made this exactly as written and sprinkled lime juice over the pork and potatoes when done cooking. Definitely a keeper! Thanks again, Ms. Hattabaugh and Milk Street team.

This was good for such a simple dish. I think you'll definitely need to add some additional salt and lime juice though.
