How to make Twice Baked Taco Potatoes:

The first thing you want to do is bake the potatoes. I pierced my potatoes with a fork then put them in the oven for 1 hour at 400 degrees. I used russet potatoes.

You can always prepare the potatoes ahead of time, just keep them in the fridge until you are ready to use them.

While the potatoes were baking I started getting the taco meat ready. I used 96% lean ground beef to help keep it low in points.

I browned the taco meat then added taco seasoning, water and tomato sauce. Let that simmer for 5 minutes.

Once the potatoes are cooked cut them in half and scoop out the potato, leaving the potato shell.

Put the potatoes in a large bowl, add the milk then mash them. Stir in the taco meat and half of the cheddar cheese.

Spoon the mixture into the potato shells and bake for 20-25 minutes.

These can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge. Just add 5-10 extra minutes in the oven.

Now the fun part, adding your toppings! You can add sour cream, green onions, tomatoes, cilantro or guacamole. Any of your favorite taco toppings!
