Christopher Kimball, author of Milk Street: Cookish, shares a quick and easy recipe for pork and potato tacos—only six ingredients required!
"Potatoes and pork seasoned with ancho chili powder and cumin make an easy, flavorful filling for tacos. Be sure to use a nonstick skillet, as the potatoes' starch makes them prone to sticking. If you like, offer a few of the garnishes suggested and allow diners to top their own tacos."—Chris

Wash and dry potatoes (Chris uses wet-it! Swedish Sponge Cloths to pat the potatoes dry); Cut into ½-inch pieces.
Mix the chili powder, cumin and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. (Chris uses the Kuhn Rikon Performance Ratchet Grinder to grind whole spices.)
In 2 separate bowls, toss half the spice mixture with the potatoes and the remaining half with the pork.
In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the potatoes, then cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until well browned and tender. Stir in the pork and garlic, then cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pork is lightly browned and cooked through. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the tortillas (Chris uses Boska Reusable Toaster Bags to warm his up) and garnishes, if using.
