What You'll Need
  • 6 large russet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup Butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons Taco Seasoning
  • 1 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 15 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • Salsa (optional)
  • Sour Cream (optional)
  • 1 small can chopped black olives
  1. Pierce potatoes several times with a fork. Bake potatoes at 375 degrees for one hour or until tender. Reduce heat to 350 degrees. When cool enough to handle, cut the potatoes lengthwise into quarters. Scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4 inch shell.
  2. Combine the butter and taco seasoning. Brush over both sides of potato skins. Place skin side down on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with the cheese, bacon, black olives and onions.
  3. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve with salsa and sour cream if desired.

I am married to a great guy and together we have an amazing daughter. I have always loved to cook and was encouraged by my mother to get creative in the kitchen, and to always have fun. I have enjoyed passing on my love of cooking and baking to my own daughter, who is now a young adult and becoming quite creative in her own kitchen.
