Loaded Baked Potato Tacos Recipe

It’s a big deal when you find something your kids love to eat for dinner.  Our family loves tacos and a good baked potato bar.

So we combined 2 of our favorites and came up with this delicious meal. The whole family devoured these loaded potatoes.

A victory dinner tonight.  Simple, tasty and easy.  A win-win for everyone. You will love how simple and delicious these tacos are.

add a little more flavor:

This dish is delicious as is, however, I like to add a little ranch seasoning mix to give it just a little extra flavor. It is so yummy with a little kick of ranch seasoning mix.

would any potato work for this recipe?

For this recipe, we used russet potatoes, however, really any potato would work for this recipe. I have never made it using sweet potatoes because I usually use russet potatoes.

I have made this recipe using red potatoes and it was absolutely scrumptious. You can also peel the potatoes, or keep the skin on. I like the texture of the skin, so I usually keep it on.

You could also use golden yukon potatoes. Really any potato would work great for this recipe. If you have a favorite potato, try it. It’s hard to mess this recipe up, so any type of potato would be delicious.

our favorite baked potato toppings:

It is all about the toppings for me. If you are looking for more things to top your baked potato off with, here are a few I recommend:

  • chives
  • bacon crumbles
  • cubed ham
  • olives
  • bell peppers
  • jalapenos
  • plain Greek yogurt
  • chili (with crumbled frito corn chips)
  • seasonings
  • lettuce
  • cheese
  • celery
  • nacho cheese
  • banana peppers
