Taco Stuffed Potatoes
Tender baked potatoes stuffed with seasoned ground beef, black beans, and corn. Top with cheese, sour cream, avocado, salsa, or any of your favorite taco toppings. Use baked sweet potatoes or white potatoes for the base of this recipe.
- 4 medium sized sweet potatoes/yams or white potatoes
- 1/2 pound lean ground beef
- 1/3 cup diced onion
- 3-4 tablespoons taco seasoning (check for gluten if necessary)
- 3/4 cup cooked black beans
- 3/4 cup frozen corn
- 1/2 cup water
- Toppings: shredded cheese sour cream, avocado, salsa, green onion, lettuce, tortilla chips
Preheat oven to 375°F. Prick each sweet potato several times with a fork. Wrap each potato tightly in foil. Bake until tender and cooked through, 40-60 minutes. Begin checking them at 40 minutes.
Meanwhile, saute ground beef and onion, breaking up the meat with a spatula. Once the meat is cooked through add taco seasoning, beans, corn, and water. Stir to combine and simmer for several minutes, until the corn is heated through. Add salt to taste.
Remove cooked potatoes from foil. Slice along the top of each potato and squeeze the sides to open it up slightly. Stuff the taco filling into the baked potato, top with desired toppings, and serve immediately.
