Tex-Mex Stuffed Potatoes Recipe

Although you can serve this as a side dish, it's filling enough to make a main course. Small gatherings are good occasions for my stuffed potatoes—they're so easy to throw together. Our 10-acre farm outside Toronto is nowhere near to the Southwest, of course. I love Mexican food, though, and this makes a nice alternative to tacos. I like its zesty taste, too.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 can (16 ounces) refried beans
  • 1 jar (8 ounces) spicy Mexican salsa
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped tomato
  • Corn or tortilla chips for garnish


  • 1. Bake potatoes at 400° for 1 hour or until they are tender. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, brown ground beef, onion and garlic. Drain fat; add beans, salsa and pepper to taste. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 40 minutes or until thickened. To serve, cut an "x" in the top of each potato. Fluff potato pulp with a fork and spoon beef mixture over each potato. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with chopped green onion and tomato. Serve with corn chips, if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
