Delicious baked potatoes topped with seasoned ground beef and all your favorite taco toppings!
Prep Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Author Holly


  • 4 to 6 medium Russet potatoes
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 packet (1 ounce) taco seasoning


  • shredded lettuce
  • cheddar cheese
  • sour cream
  • salsa
  • guacamole
  • green onion


  • Preheat oven to 400° F. Wash potatoes in water, then pat dry with paper towels. Poke a few holes in each potato, then wrap each of them in foil. Bake potatoes for 1 hour. Carefully remove hot potatoes from oven and set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a large skillet, brown and crumble ground beef over medium-high heat. Drain grease, if any. Add taco seasoning to beef and amount of water packet calls for. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove foil from potatoes then cut a slit in the top to open. Fill each potato with ground beef and all of your favorite taco toppings. Enjoy!
