Sometimes you just want something else to go with your tacos that is not mexi rice? Right? Well I do. When I make tacos for me, I’m not too worried about adding extra sides because I don’t want the extra calories. But when you are cooking for a group or your family you need more variety! You want to make sure everyone is happily stuffed full.

Tex Mex Potatoes are the perfect side to any Mexican dish! Tacos, burritos, taquitos….you name it, add these to the side. It adds a litte variety from the typical sides and they are pretty simple to make too!
