In Ozona, Texas, Kaleta Shepperson loads her potatoes with a taco topping that's quick, easy and flavorful. "Everyone who tries these potatoes likes them," she comments. "They're almost a meal by themselves. I serve them with breadsticks, a green salad and dessert."


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 4 hot baked potatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • Salsa, optional


  1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add taco seasoning; prepare according to package directions.
  2. With a sharp knife, cut an X in the top of each potato; fluff pulp with a fork. Top with taco meat, cheese and onions. Serve with salsa if desired.
