Can't make up your mind between tacos or baked potatoes? Well, look no further--here's your answer. Cooling time between both baking times is included. For the taco seasoning, I used Mucho Gusto Taco Seasoning Mix. If desired serve with a salad. Submitted to "ZAAR" on August 2nd, 2007

Directions

  1. Bake potatoes at 400º for 1 hour 15 minutes.
  2. While potatoes are cooling (about 15 minutes), cook ground beef until lightly browned.
  3. Drain beef and return to pan; add taco seasoning and water.
  4. Simmer for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  5. Remove a small slice from top of potatoes, removing potato pulp and making sure to leave at least a 1/4-inch shell all the way around.
  6. In a medium sized bowl, combine the following ingredients: 3/4 cup of cheese, sour cream, margarine, salt and pepper; mix well.
  7. Divide pulp evenly between potato shells.
  8. After putting pulp mixture back into shell, make a "nest" to add ground beef mixture evenly between the two.
  9. Return to oven to bake for another 25 minutes and then divide remaining cheese (at this point, add more cheese if desired) over each potato.
  10. Bake for another 10 minutes.

I would like to try this recipe, but I can't figure out what to do with the sour cream mixture. Maybe I am miss reading, but I don't see it. Please clarify.

I would like to thank you for posting this wonderful recipe. I had a Mexican night and made your recipe accompanied with tacos. My dinner guests raved over the potatoes and insisted they have your recipe. I will surely be making these again. Just a note: I used white sweet potatoes and Russet potatoes. Sensational!! Chef Glo
