Taco Potato Shells Recipe
- 3 large baking potatoes
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 envelope taco seasoning
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 2 green onions, sliced
- 1. Scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. When cool enough to handle, cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell (refrigerate pulp for another use). Brush inside and outside of potato shells with butter. Place cut side up on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add tomatoes and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Spoon into potato shells; sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Top with sour cream and onions. Yield: 6 servings.
Taco Potato Shells also make a hearty appetizer. Cut the potato shells into wedges, top with the meat mixture and cheese. Bake as directed; serve with sour cream and onions.
