No need to stand at the stove deep-frying these tacos dorados. They crisp up beautifully in the oven using just a few tablespoons of oil—making them totally doable for weeknight meals. We fill flour tortillas with roughly mashed potatoes and cheese; pickled jalapeños and chipotle chilies in adobo lend the filling some kick. Finish the tacos with cool, crisp iceberg lettuce and fresh cilantro, then embellish with more garnishes if you like; see the suggestions below.
