If you like Taco Bell’s potatoes this recipe is a MUST try! This is VERY close to those potatoes you find in their Potato Grillers,  fiesta potatoes, and Cheesy Potato Burrito’s!

These Taco Bell Style Potatoes are prepared in an easy to make coating. Try freezing some for future burritos or stash some in the fridge to make a quick wrap or potato bowls! This is another successful Taco Bell copycat recipe and if you haven’t tried this Creamy Jalapeño sauce from Taco Bell you need to!

You could try, I’m sure how red potatoes would work here, Lauren.

Goodness gracious these are good! Followed your recipe exactly and they turned out perfect! We loved them.

But, our favorite part… We love sweet potatoes, so I tweaked your recipe a bit tonight (sub’d cinnamon for paprika, used brown sugar and less corn starch, etc.) and those turned out insanely good!! I highly recommend trying it!!

Thanks for sharing! We have two new recipes to use!!!
