These are not your ordinary tacos. Make them special with mashed potatoes and any sautéed vegetables of your choice.

4 medium potatoes, mashed 1/2 pound lean ground beef 1 medium red pepper 1 medium green pepper 1 medium onion 1/2 cup shredded carrots 4 ounces reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese salt and pepper to taste 8 flour tortilla, 6 inch

Prepare mashed potatoes.*

In a medium skillet, cook ground beef until brown. Add vegetables and continue to cook until vegetables are tender and ground beef is thoroughly cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste. In a small skillet, heat each tortilla until warm. Spread tortilla with a layer of mashed potatoes. Add a portion of the vegetables. To serve, fold in half.

* Mashed potatoes can be prepared from boiled or baked potatoes. Making the mashed potatoes from a box of commercial dried potatoes is also an option.
