Make these homemade Potato Tacos with Chipotle Sauce for Lent
As a young girl I was a picky eater, I would never eat any seafood or salads.  Looking back at my childhood I am impressed how my mother would create meals for me to eat on Lenten Fridays.  What is Lenten Fridays?  Catholics practice acts of penitence and spiritual self-discipline during Lent, one of those disciplines is a fast that requires Catholics to abstain from meat (warm blooded animals) on Fridays during Lent.  When I was invited to participate in the  #VivaLaMorena campaign with #CollectiveBias the first thing I remembered my mom making that I enjoyed was Tacos de Papa (Potato Tacos).  Wanting to make sure I offer you a true taste of Mexico I went with La Morena for its authentic taste and rich flavor for the sauce.
Shop for La Morena products at your local grocery store.

First lets go shopping!  I went to Superior market to get all of my shopping for this recipe.  They have everything I need for an authentic Mexican meal.  Of course I bought chicharones while I was there, who can resist?
