  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 4 hot baked potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • Salsa, guacamole, sour cream (optional)


  1. Prepare the Taco Meat: In a large skillet, cook and crumble the ground beef over medium heat until it is no longer pink. Drain any excess grease if necessary. Add the taco seasoning and follow the package directions to prepare the flavorful taco meat.
  2. Prepare the Baked Potatoes: Using a sharp knife, make a small X-shaped incision on the top of each baked potato. Fluff the potato pulp with a fork to create a fluffy base. Optionally, add a tablespoon of butter to each potato for an extra indulgent touch.
  3. Assemble the Idaho Tacos: On each baked potato, generously heap one-fourth of the prepared taco meat, allowing the seasoned beef to mingle with the soft potato texture. Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheddar cheese over the top, letting it melt and envelop the meat in a gooey embrace. Finish the creation with a vibrant sprinkle of freshly chopped green onions, adding a burst of color and freshness to every bite.
  4. Optional Garnishes: Elevate your Idaho Tacos by serving them with your choice of accompaniments. Drizzle zesty salsa for a tangy kick, dollop creamy guacamole for a rich contrast, and spoon velvety sour cream for a cooling finish.
