Taco Tuesday: Roasted Potato Tacos

Happy Wednesday friends! I am so glad that we are half-way through this dreaded week. I am slowly getting all the pics re-posted on here, and want to thank you all for being patient while I get it done. In my menu planning I have a habit of trying to alternate which protein I use for the main dishes, but rarely do I make any sort of vegetarian dish. Mostly because I'm super picky about veggies, and I rarely find a main dish that suits my taste. However, while searching for taco recipes, I came across a few of the vegetarian variety and they looked great! And thus, they were added to the food calendar.

I love potatoes, though as I've mentioned before, I have haven't been cooking with them much until recently. Now it seems I'm in potato overload. You think I'm kidding, just wait for Friday's post! Anywho (and yes, I mean to say anywho, not anyhow), when I saw these Roasted Potato Tacos on Cassie Craves, I knew they were going to be delicious. Now, being the picky veggie eater that I am, I had to make some modifications but the flavors were amazing and I am super happy that I recently found Cassie's should check it out!
