Obviously we all know what tacos are but these Idaho tacos are about to blow your mind. Keep reading for the recipe although it is rather simple.

I’d like to shake hands with the genius who first came up with Idaho Tacos. Actually I’m pretty upset that I didn’t think of this myself and that these have been missing from life for all of these years.

An Idaho taco is simply a baked potato (that’s the Idaho part) that’s filled with seasoned taco meat, shredded cheese, and all of your favorite taco toppings!

Idaho tacos are also super easy to make! They’re a perfect weeknight dinner for the whole family. Oh and another plus - they’re gluten free. The next time you can’t decide on whether to eat a baked potato or tacos for dinner, do both and thank me later.

To make Idaho Tacos you’ll need the follow ingredients:

1 lb ground beef
1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope taco seasoning
4 large hot baked potatoes
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped green onion
salsa
sour cream
Any other taco toppings!

Now here’s how to make them:

Cook the ground beef till it’s browned, then drain.
Add the taco seasoning and prepare according to package instructions.
After the potatoes are fresh and baked hot, cut an X in the top of each one. Fluff pulp with a fork.
Top each potato with an even amount of taco meat, cheese, green onion, and whatever other fillings you’d like
Serve with bowls of salsa and sour cream and add as desired
