"Can't make up your mind between tacos or baked potatoes? Well, look no further--here's your answer. Cooling time between both baking times is included.If you want your potatoes meatier, use the larger amount of ground beef indicated in the list of ingredients. If desired serve with a salad. This is a recipe that I had previously posted on another recipe site. " Keep Smiling :)"

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I did as a one serve though my potato was huge coming in at 350 grams and I may have got the mince wrong in the conversion but I used 125 grams and followed as recipe with the potato taking 1 1/2 hours to cook in a 175C fan forced oven. When it came to the stuffing of the potato I could not get all the mince in so put the surplus in the lid which I had removed the potato flesh from and sprinkled some cheese on top and returned to the oven for 15 minutes and the end result was a delicious and very filling dinner, thank you Chef shapeweaver, made for Pick Me tag game.

Yes, tacos and potatoes, it doesn't get any better than that! I made these healthier by using light sour cream and less butter/cheese/salt. Topped with some pico de gallo and a little guacamole, and we were in heaven.
