Serves 12

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.

  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 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.
