Potato, Egg and Cheese Tacos

Potato, Egg and Cheese Tacos | 5DollarDinners.com

Growing up in South Texas, I was a regular customer at Taco Cabana! Can I get a shout out from all you TC lovers? We would go there daily for lunch, and maybe even for dinner the same night. Had to get our “bean and cheese” fix and then enjoy their delicious “tortillas and queso”!

This is my tribute to TC…except a little on the healthier side!

Potato, Egg and Cheese Tacos

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 5 minutes

Cooking Time – 10 minutes


  • 8-10 Tortillas ($1.29)
  • 6-8 small white potatoes, diced ($.99)
  • 6-8 eggs ($.95)
  • 1-2 cups cheese ($1.25)
  • 1 oranges and 1 apple, cut into quarters (or any other favorite seasonal fruit) ($.50)


  • (Warm tortillas in oven or microwave). Cook diced potatoes in small amount of water in bottom of skillet (use oil if you prefer “greaser” potatoes!). Season with S/P, or other “seasoning”. When cooked, transfer to plate. Scramble 6-8 eggs in the same skillet. I like to add a little milk in with the eggs. Season with S/P. Once eggs are almost fully cooked, stir in potatoes and mix. Let eggs and potatoes finish “mixing flavors”.
  • Here’s where you’re choice comes in….
    • Option #1 add cheese to potatoes and eggs in skillet. Let melt. The spoon into tortillas and roll.
    • Option #2 spoon egg/potato mix into tortilla, then sprinkle with cheese. Roll to eat.
  • Serve with orange slices.
  • Enjoy some goodness and try to keep the eggs/potatoes mix from falling out the bottom!

Cost $4.98

      umm.. can I just say how pure genius it is to cook the vgegies in beer? These look so good I love tacos, but sometimes I get bored with the normal taco fillings. I’m definitly going to have to keep this recipe in mind next time I’m craving Mexican food!

    I’m going to make these tonight! Maybe add a little dehydrated onion, maybe some salsa too.
    Hell, maybe I’ll break out the quesadilla maker and make quesadillas out of it.
