Q: Can I use sweet potatoes instead of regular potatoes for this recipe?

A: Yes, you can definitely substitute sweet potatoes for regular potatoes in this recipe. Just keep in mind that the cooking time may be slightly longer as sweet potatoes take a bit longer to fry.

Q: Are there any vegetarian or vegan options for these tacos?

A: Yes! You can easily make these tacos vegetarian by omitting the sour cream or using a plant-based alternative. For a vegan option, skip the sour cream and use a vegan taco seasoning. You can also add in some grilled veggies for extra flavor and texture.

Q: Can I make these tacos ahead of time?

A: While these tacos are best enjoyed fresh, you can definitely make them ahead of time and reheat them in the oven or on a skillet.

Q: Are these tacos gluten-free?

A: Yes, as long as you use corn tortillas, these tacos are gluten-free. Be sure to check the ingredients of your taco seasoning and toppings to ensure they are also gluten-free.
