SO…someone forgot to buy taco shells *points to husband*, therefor taco Tuesday became Loaded Taco Potato Tuesday and it just so happens that I like this twist very much!
I cooked up 1 lb of ground beef with a packet of Mc Cormick spicy taco seasoning. You can also mix up a batch of your own taco seasoning too, but I’ve been a little busy this week! Arghhh!
Bake a couple of spuds in the oven. I use the microwave, so much quicker. I stab the potato a few times, *great stress reliever when your husband forgets to buy taco shells 🙂*, coat with a little oil and some salt, and pop in the microwave for about 8 mins on each side or until tender. Or you can pierce, oil and salt your potato, wrap in foil and bake at 425F for about 45-60 minutes.
While the potatoes are cooking, prepare all your favorite taco toppings. I use diced tomatoes, onion, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and cilantro.
Cut open your cooked potato and fluff with a fork, toss a tbsp of butter in there *or more, I won’t tell*… some salt and pepper and load on your taco toppings! Easy peasy!!! And oh so deliciousssss!
