In a large bowl, mix the potatoes, onion, peppers, and salt. Fill each tortilla with about 2 Tbs. of the mixture and secure with toothpicks. Heat oil - hot enough for frying. If the temperature is not hot enough, the tortillas will absorb too much oil. Fry tacos until golden brown in 1/4 inch of oil, being careful not to get oil into the filling. Drain well. Serve immediately with salsa, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, and extra hot peppers.
