Taco night is always a good night. And these Oven Baked Potato Tacos are quick, easy and delicious! They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. PLUS, they are baked instead of pan fried, so there is very little oil needed. Serve them up with your favorite salsas and hot sauces for a tasty vegan weeknight dinner!

Step One: Make the Potatoes

To make the potato filling we are essentially making mashed potatoes. Peel and cube some russet potatoes and add them to a large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the potatoes are fork tender – this should take about 15-20 minutes.

Drain the potatoes and let them cool slightly. Then, add the potatoes to a bowl and mash until mostly smooth – it’s ok if there are a few chunks. Add salsa verde (homemade or store-bought), some dry seasonings and vegan cream cheese. Mix until smooth, taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

Step Two: Assemble & Bake

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (for easier clean-up) and grab some taco-sized flour tortillas. Working with one tortilla at a time, spray one side with some oil. Flip the tortilla over and add as much filling as you can fit – my tortillas were on the larger side, so I made some jumbo tacos.

Gently fold in half so the tortilla sticks together. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Flip and cook for another 5-10 minutes, or until your desired crispiness is reached – I like mine extra crispy!

I decided to use flour tortillas for these tacos, but you could also use corn. If you use corn, be sure to steam them in the microwave before assembling so they are easier to work with. I like to do this by wrapping them in a damp paper towel and microwaving for 30-60 seconds.

Step Three: The Toppings!

While the tacos are cooking, you can prep all of your favorite taco toppings. You have lots of options, but here are some of my favorites:

Pull the tacos out of the oven and serve them up with your favorite toppings. These tacos are hearty, crispy and just plain tasty! They can also be reheated! Just pop them in the oven or air fryer for a few minutes until they crisp back up.
