We love Taco Baked Potatoes! Have been making them for years! Here is what I do: Rub a large potato with vegetable oil, mix together salt, pepper, a little ground cumin and chili powder and sprinkle on the outside of the potato before baking. Adds lots of flavor. Follow recipe exactly, I also finish it with diced avocados and crushed tortilla chips! Very pretty presentation!
