  • 6 Medium Alsum russet potatoes
  • 2 Pounds Ground beef
  • 1 Ounce Packet of taco seasoning
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Shredded red cabbage or lettuce
  • Diced chiles
  • Diced tomato
  • Cilantro chopped
  • Jalapeno slices optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Rinse and clean your potatoes, then bake for 60 minutes. (Cooking tip: To reduce cook time, microwave potatoes for about 12 minutes.)
  • Once potatoes are done and tender, slice them in half lengthwise.
  • Using a spoon, begin scooping out the insides of the potatoes until there is just a thin layer of the insides left.
  • Cook the ground beef. Sprinkle your taco seasoning into the beef and mix well.
  • Turn off heat and divide the beef mixture into the hollowed potato skins.
  • Sprinkle with the shredded cheese and bake until cheese is melted.
  • Place your skins on your serving tray and top with shredded lettuce or red cabbage, diced tomato and chiles, jalapeno (optional), and a dollop of sour cream. Top with cilantro.
