I made these Taco Stuffed Potatoes a couple of years ago – and decided I would try it again. I started with large Baking Potatoes, poked some holes in them with a fork, to allow the steam to escape – and rubbed them with Olive Oil and Salt and Pepper. Then o baked them at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
I fried 1 pound of hamburger, added some salt and pepper, some Beef Broth, and some Taco Seasoning. I let it simmer to cook off the Beef Broth.
After 1 hour, I took the potatoes out of the oven, and let them cool for a few minutes, then I cut the tops of the potatoes off. I removed most of the insides of the potatoes, leaving just enough to main their form. I then mixed the potato flesh with the hamburger mixture. Then I put the mixture back inside of the hollowed out potatoes.
Then I crushed up some Tortilla Chips and put them on top of the potatoes, then added some more of the potato /hamburger mixture, then topped with some cheese. And, as an added extra, I put the leftover potato /hamburger mixture on top of the potato section that I cut off the top, and topped it with Cheese.
Then, I put the potatoes back in the oven for about 10 minutes – then served. At that point, we topped our individual Taco Stuffed Potatoes with our choices of Taco toppings and Salsa.
They were very good, and it was a meal all by itself.
