Nacho Potatoes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by currybunny

Will be making this next week, looks great! Nice easy Mexican meat & potatoes... UPDATE: having made this, I would have used at least a tablespoon of taco seasoning to get it up to what we like, also chopped and cooked up an onion with the beef. Definately needed some more spices for our taste! Easy weeknight dinner!

I made these using some leftover taco meat that I had in the freezer. This was a really fun, different way to have tacos. I cooked the potatoes in the microwave, then finished the filled spuds under the broiler. I topped the potatoes with lettuce, tomato, taco sauce and sour cream after they came out of the oven. Great quick, weeknight meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake or microwave potatoes until done - either 6-10 minutes on high in the microwave, until gently yield to touch when firmly pressed or bake at 425 for 30 minutes.
  2. Cut in half, allow to cool slightly.
  3. Scoop some of the flesh out of the centres with a spoon, leaving about ½” of the flesh next to the skin.
  4. Fill each half with cooked Ground Beef seasoned with taco/fajita seasoning and top with cheddar or Jalapeno Jack Cheese.
  5. Place under the broiler until cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and top each half with Sour Cream. Sprinkle chopped tomato & chopped cilantro on top of each and serve. Add a bowl of salsa on the table, spoon salsa over warm potato nacho -- the best seasoning!
