There are a few things I miss TERRIBLY about Iowa and other than my best friend + her family - they are ALL food related!!! I've been on a quest to make them at home so I don't have to have such a gorgefest when I get home. There are Maid Rites, Carlos O'Kelly's Queso, Fareway Chicken Salad, Ginormous Pork Tenderloins and Taco Johns Potato Oles!!!
I used to eat these on practically a daily basis in college. They were on campus and my best friend & I would always go for lunch and get soft tacos and potato oles! They're basically Crispy Crowns (flat tater tots) with zingy + spicy seasoning salt.
So I cooked up some of those yummy little Crispy Crowns...
And then sprinkled the seasoning on - shook it a little to coat and boomio! Done!
You can also use this on hashbrowns, tots, eggs, chicken, and more. If you want to add some zing to something - just sprinkle away!
So enjoy this taste of home from me and - if you're ever in Iowa - stop by Taco Johns. They also have the best churros ever!!
