  • 6 baking potatoes
  • 1 lb ground turkey (or ground beef)
  • 1 medium size sweet onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow pepper, diced
  • taco seasoning
  • 1 15 oz can Ricos Gourmet Nacho Cheese Sauce
  • sour cream
  • french onions


  • Bake the potatoes in the microwave depending on your microwave’s directions. If you’d like, you can also bake them in the oven for a crispier outside. Cut them open to let them cool just a little bit.
  • While the potatoes are baking, brown the ground turkey (or ground beef) and add in the diced onion, peppers and taco seasoning and cook until peppers are soft.
  • Cut the baked potatoes open about 1/2 way and scoop out most of the potato filling. You can use this filling for anything — mashed potatoes, etc. We mixed it in with the leftover meat and cheese — yum!
  • Fill the potato boat with the turkey meat mixture. Top with Ricos Cheese Sauce, sour cream and garnish with green onions.
