Spray each piece of foil with non-stick cooking spray. Place about ¾ cup potatoes in the center of each piece of foil. Top with 1 teaspoon of butter and a pinch of salt. Top with ½ cup of taco meat and a sprinkle of cheese. Repeat with remaining 5 pieces of foil and ingredients. Bring the two sides up and fold down twice.
