If you’re like me, and can’t function without some good Mexican food every now and then, then these papasitos are for you. These authentic and delicious tacos are traditionally filled with potatoes or meat. I prefer them with potatoes because they’re a nice break from the typical corn tortilla for tacos.

I’m not the only one who loves these papasitos — my whole family does too! There’s not a single person in my family who doesn’t enjoy at least one of these tasty treats per week, which is more than enough to keep us satisfied until our next craving comes around again.

What about pappasitos stores?

Despite the fact that these are not really a store-bought item, some people have made a pappasitos brand and have started selling their yummy stuff at stores. However, they are getting expensive and they don’t taste like papasitos. I doubt that there will be many stores selling pappasito tacos in the near future.

How are pappasitos stores doing?

Pappasito tacos were introduced in 2005 and was an instant hit. Some pappasito stores had to close because they could not keep up with the demand for these yummy tacos. Other stores have been able to manage the demand and are doing very well.

Customer loyalty of pappasito stores.

Pappasitos stores maintain very high customer loyalty. Many pappasito customers shop in these stores for many years and are loyal to their franchises even when these stores close because of other priorities.

How does this compare to other brands?

Pappasitos is a popular brand compared to other brands in the Mexican food industry (for example: Chipotle). The popularity of this brand has been steadily increasing over the years, proving that their products are top quality and that they are worth trusting.

Is Pappasitos a good deal? Should I buy them? 

I think Pappasitos tacos are a good deal but it’s not exactly an everyday item. It’s a “once-in-a-while” kind of thing for me. The tacos are pretty expensive and considering the fact that there are many other good brands out there it could be a waste of money to buy Pappasitos too often.


Are pappasitos healthy?

Pappasitos are not the healthiest type of food you can eat. Although I try to avoid them most of the time, I like having them every once in a while because they’re so delicious it’s hard to resist! As with any other dish, moderation is key here. If you’re going to have them, try not to have too many in one sitting (that’s what I do). 

And the best part: they’re really easy to make. I usually whip these up when I have a little extra time on the weekend, and have them stored in the freezer for when we need a quick lunch or dinner. My mom has been making these tacos since I was little, so they’re definitely family-approved!


500 grams of russet potatoes (about 5 medium sized potatoes) peeled, cut into 3/4-inch cubes, and boiled until fork-tender.

2 tbsp of  extra virgin olive oil (about 1/4 cup), divided

1 tsp of cumin powder

1 tsp of smoked paprika

Pinch of red chile flakes (optional)

Salt and pepper to taste, preferably coarse sea salt (I used high-quality dried sea salt)


-In a medium bowl, place the cooked potatoes and mash them together with a potato masher. 

-Divide the mashed potatoes into 3 bowls. Add 1/2 tbsp of olive oil to each plate and stir to combine. 

-Set aside. In a small bowl, mix together 1 tsp olive oil, cumin, smoked paprika, red chile flakes and salt and pepper until well combined. 

-Add this spice mixture to one of the mashed potato bowls and mix until well combined. Set aside. In a skillet heated over medium high heat, add 1 tsp of oil. 

-Add half the potato mixture to the skillet and cook for about 2 minutes; flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes. 

-Remove from pan and let drain on paper towels. 

-Repeat with remaining potatoes, adding another teaspoon of oil to pan with each batch of potatoes as needed for cooking.

Serve immediately or divide into smaller portions (I prefer it in smaller portions because my wife claims that she hates leftover food).

To freeze, fold into a freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 1 month.

-When ready to eat, remove from the freezer and defrost in the microwave on 30% power for 1 minute.

-Heat up in a non-stick skillet with 1/2 tbsp of olive oil until golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes per side. 

-Serve with desired toppings. 


Papasitos are a great, inexpensive meal that everybody loves. I know they’re not the healthiest thing out there, but I like to have them now and then. These papasitos are perfect for dinner and a really good snack. I hope you enjoy these papasitos as much as we do!
