EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Sarah Agena, with the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association, shares recipes for baked potatoes during National Baked Potato Month.

Taco Baked Potato


1 russet potato

4 oz ground beef

1 Tbsp taco seasoning

1 Tbsp shredded cheddar cheese

1/4 cup tortilla chips

1 Tbsp Pico de Gallo prepared

1 oz avocado sliced

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp olive oil


Heat oven to 450°F.

Spray or rub your potatoes in olive oil.

Poke potatoes with a fork all over to help with even cooking.

Bake the potatoes for 60 minutes.

While the potatoes are baking, cook the ground beef in a pan with the taco seasoning for 10 minutes on medium heat.

After 60 minutes, pull the potatoes from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes.

After cooling the potatoes, cut them open lengthwise.

Top the potato with the cooked taco ground beef, Pico de Gallo, tortilla chips, and avocado.

Add salt to taste if desired.
