Our cellar master made lunch today at the winery to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. “Happy Cuatro de Mayo,” we teased him.

Potato tacos are the ultimate Mexican comfort food. Lightly spiced mashed potatoes spooned into homemade corn tortillas, closed with toothpicks, and deep fried to a golden crisp. Add homemade salsa, shredded cabbage, queso cotija, and a squeeze of lime. The initial crunch of the taco gives way to the warm, softness of the potato within. It’s just one more way to make mashed potatoes even better.

I lost count of how many I ate. But what the hell… Cuatro de Mayo only comes once a year.
