    This is good to make in a hurry, but agree with 5hungrykids on the name. The Mexican way i make is to brown the beef, add 1 pk of taco seasoning with a can small can of Tomato Sauce or one can of Chili with Beans which is my favorite. Bake as directed and add sour cream, cheddar cheese, onions etc to top. They are a meal by themselves.

    These were good. Nothing fantastic about them, but they were good. My kids don't like baked potatoes, but they ate these just fine. I'm not sure why "Mexican" is in the name of these because there's no hint of Mexican in these. My son calls them Sloppy Spuds since it uses sloppy joe sauce. More appropriate name, I think.
