A taco in a potato! The creation of my friend. It feeds well, is easy to make and is *FILLING*. It's a good "Go to".

Directions

  1. Spray the bottom of a frying pan with cooking spay so that the meat won't stick.
  2. Cook the ground meat until no pink color is left. (Time to cook ground meat may vary, depending on meat used.).
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of butter to the meat then roughly half of the taco seasoning. Stir it all until it's combined, then turn off the heat.
  4. Poke shallow holes in your potatoes, then wrap them tightly in plastic wrap. (Note: Do not poke holes in the wrap or the potato will not cook properly.).
  5. Set the power on HIGH and cook for 5-7 minutes each. (Depending on your microwave) You may want to cook them one at a time. (We haven't tried cooking both at a time -- ).
  6. Carefully remove the potatoes from the microwave and cut them open with a butter knife, being careful not to cut all the way through. Add 1 Teaspoon of butter to each potato.
  7. Plate each potato, and pile on the meat.
  8. Top with the cheese, and add sour cream. Enjoy! (You could adjust the cheese and sour cream amounts to your liking, too).
