I was browsing and swa these! these are a regular at our dinner table we call them Taco potatoes! I like to use ground turkey when I have it but everything else is just the same! tastes yummy with a dollup of plain yogurt or sour cream on top!

These are very filling, delicious, and easy! One of our family favorites. If you make a double recipe of taco meat at the beginning of the week, you can use it for the potatoes one night and taco salad another.
