until cooked through.
In a large frying pan over medium heat,
cook ground beef until no pink remains.

Slice the baked potato on the top
horizontally then small slits vertically.
Using a fork, fluff the inside of the potato.
Spoon taco meat mixture over
the top of the cooked potato.

If you want to you can put it in the microwave

I’ve made taco salad many times but never thought of placing it on a potato. Great idea, thanks!
You’re welcome! Give it a try you won’t be sorry!
This looks amazing..New recipe and combination…
Very tasty but of course I used way more than a dollop of sour cream on top! It was so filling I only ate half but my potatoes were huge!
Ofc… The combination is great and sometimes its hard to decide how much can you have at a time… when you have prepared finger licking stuffing…though your heart wanted more you can not have more…..
YUM! I LOVE baked potatoes! I love tacos! This is perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wait until you taste them! My husband already has his order in for the next ones…..lol
I’ll bet even my semi-picky kiddos would enjoy this meal. I will definitely try it out—thank you for the recipe!
I bet you’re right…lol
Your recipe looks super good! it reminds me of the food I found in England this summer
Thank You I bet there was some fantastic food there!!
Brilliant! I’ve book marked this for our next family get-together. I especially like the easy clean-up aspect.
It would be great for a family get together! Thanks!
Must refrain from licking the screen!!! These look really GREAT!!!! I’m writing down the recipe, I think my husband will really like these!
Hahaha I have a funny feeling he will like them, mine sure did! Thank you Kathy!
They make my “Meal in a Peal”, which are baked potatoes with butter, cheese, olives, and parsley and whatever nuts and seeds we have in the fridge look kind of lame. I’ve got your recipe written down and will see about getting the ingredients I don’t have on hand. I’ll post pictures when I get it made. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!!
Oh yes please post pictures! You won’t believe how good this is Kathy! You have a great weekend too!
Wow, these look amazing! How great for a quick and easy meal. I am going to give these a try. Yum.
Thanks Carla you can even do Sloppy Joe etc. like this.
Yum. Do you grow your potatoes Diane? I’m with you – extra sour cream is a must.
I did one year but the bugs did so much damage they didn’t do well. That’s one I prefer to buy.
Yum Yum Yum!!!
Welcome… The potato is so tempting!
What a really nice review! Thank you for such kind words Kathy and for sharing my link!
