Hashbrown Taco Bar

Hashbrowns usually show up at breakfast, but have you ever tried hashbrowns for dinner?

Everybody’s always looking for something new and different to put on the dinner table.  We get in a rut, and we need to break out of it!  One way to do this is to take an ingredient and use it for something completely different.

Hashbrowns are staging a dinner comeback in a playful twist on the taco bar.  This hashbrown taco bar is perfect for a “Meatless Monday” or any old day of the week that you want dinner to be fast, filling, and fun.

I’m using Hungry Jack Black Pepper & Onion Hashbrowns in my taco bar.  The bold flavor is well suited for pairing with salsa, sour cream, and all the veggies you might pile on a taco.  You can use this handy store locator to find them near you.

Tips for Setting Up a Hashbrown Taco Bar

  • I love spicy stuff, so I blend chipotle peppers into my refried beans.  If you’re not into spicy things, feel free to omit the chipotle peppers.  Or blend in a little bit of mild sauce for flavor without heat.
  • If you’ve never had fresh Mexican crumbling cheese (also known as “queso fresco”), I highly encourage you to seek it out in the cheese aisle.  It adds the perfect flavor and texture to any Mexican dish.
  • There are as many people who love cilantro as those who can’t stand it.  Omit it if it’s not your thing.
