THANK YOU, Lofthouse…you post a new recipe and I instantly know what to make for dinner!!
Thanks for dinner idea!
This is the perfect weather for a “stuffed” potato, and such a good flavor.
Sounds good! The time can be shortened if you use a microwave potato bag!!! I sew them for Amazon. Check out Microwavepotatobags.com on Amazon. Awesome 3 to 4 minutes and your potato is done!!!
OMG!! The Taco Stuffed Baked potatoes are AWESOME!!!!
Loved them! These potatoes have to be more nutritious then taco shells.
My husband just renamed this meal “baked potaco”! So easy and yummy! Thanks!
I made this for dinner last night. My husband and I absolutely loved it, as was evidenced by our perfectly clean plates. Thank you!
What a fabulous and deliciously easy breezy meal! Another thing I love about the “Taco Baked Potato” recipe is it’s one of those “Read once and remember every single ingredient forever” recipe. Thanks!
These were so easy, and everyone enjoyed them for Mexican night. Having never made stuffed potatoes before, I was worried it wasn’t going to be enough food. Thankfully I just went with it because it ended up being more then enough! These are very filling, very delicious and definitely worth repeating. Hubs and kids approved!
So great to hear they were a success, Christine!:)
This meal was absolutely amazing! It was a huge hit between my fiance and myself and if it were up to him, we’d be making it every single day! Thank you for such a tasty and easy recipe that i can throw into our rotation. 🙂
We loved this. the second time that i made these I rubbed the potato with olive oil and then lightly sprinkled the entire skin with taco seasoning before wrapping in the foil. this infused the potato with a little more flavor. excellent addition.
