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".
- 2 whole baking potatoes (cleaned)
- 1⁄2 lb ground beef
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning (Any brand will work)
- 2 teaspoons butter, plus
- 1 teaspoon butter, for the meat
- cooking spray
- 3 ounces cheddar cheese
- 2 ounces sour cream
- Spray the bottom of a frying pan with cooking spay so that the meat won't stick.
- Cook the ground meat until no pink color is left. (Time to cook ground meat may vary, depending on meat used.).
- 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.
- 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.).
- 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 -- ).
- 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.
- Plate each potato, and pile on the meat.
- Top with the cheese, and add sour cream. Enjoy! (You could adjust the cheese and sour cream amounts to your liking, too).
