Recipe by: Amy at Living Locurto

This Fiesta Style Potato Tacos recipe is courtesy of Living Locurto.
Why we love it: Packed with all the goodies you usually find in tacos, this recipe takes potato skins to the next level of yum!

Ingredients

  • 6 medium russet potatoes
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 (1-oz.) packet of taco seasoning
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sour Cream
  • Shredded Red Cabbage or Lettuce
  • Diced Chiles
  • Diced tomato
  • Jalapeno slices (optional)
  • Cilantro, chopped

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Rinse and clean your potatoes, then bake for 60 minutes. (Or microwave potatoes for about 12 minutes.)
  3. Once potatoes are done and tender, slice them in half lengthwise.
  4. Using a spoon, begin scooping out the insides of the potatoes until there is just a thin layer of the insides left.
  5. Cook the ground beef. Sprinkle your taco seasoning into the beef and mix well into the browned beef.
  6. Turn off heat and divide the beef mixture into the hollowed potato skins.
  7. Sprinkle with the shredded cheese and bake until cheese is melted.
  8. Place your skins on your serving tray and top with shredded lettuce or red cabbage, diced tomato and chiles, jalapeno (if using), and a dollop of sour cream.
  9. Sprinkle with cilantro.

I read and re-read this recipe, looking for the scooped-out potatoes - can't believe they're not included! This is not a "potato recipe" - this is a waste of potatoes! Unless you forgot to include them? I will use the recipe, but will mix in the potatoes with the meat, etc..

I agree with Audrey. This would also be a more economical and nutritious recipe if the beef was cut in half and replaced by the potatoes. Love the idea though!!

I think that the recipe could be improved by using the scooped out potatoes and omitting the ground beef, I would use chicken instead. I would use pickled cabbage and jalapenos.
