Taco Johns Potato Ole seasoning is a little spicy, a little salty and so delicious! This copycat recipe for the potato oles is spot on!
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.

It’s super simple and now I have a jar of it ready to go anytime I want to have my fantastic Potato Ole’s at home!! Four simple ingredients: Lawry’s Seasoned Salt, Cayenne Pepper, Paprika and Cumin.
So you mix the ingredients together – shake it up – and then you’re done. That’s it!!! So simple!
