It’s been a while since I’ve written a meal plan Monday post. However, things seem to be going pretty good with me and morning sickness. Hopefully it stays that way so I can share more great recipe’s. On to the recipe.
I call this the taco-dile. Taco stuffed potatoes sounded so un-fun so taco-dile it is. I made this meal last week to take to a community group couple who had just had their baby and doubled the meal to make extra’s for my family. They were so good!
Guys so easy and really no prep at all! Use with left over taco meat after taco night.
1 2lb bag of potatoes (I used Idaho Russet)
2 lbs ground beef
1 can salsa (I used home canned)
1/2-1 cup water
2-3tbsp taco seasoning
1 16oz package of shredded cheese-Montery Jack
salt and pepper
1 small can olives(optional;10 oz)
Ground your beef and season, drain and throw it in the crockpot. Season with taco seasoning. Throw in the can of salsa and water and mix. Cook on low 6 hours or high for 4.
Bake potatoes 50-60 mins on 400 degrees F. You can even throw them in another crock if you have one and let the meat and potatoes cook together.
When potatoes are done slice halfway length wise, butter and mash, season with salt and pepper and then layer your toppings. We did one with cheese, meat, ranch dressing, more cheese and green onions. I made a big batch some with cheese, meat, ranch, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, olives and green onions.
I hope this makes it to your monthly or weekly meal plan list. It’s so easy and you can add your own great toppings.
