Idaho Tacos

I got this idea from FB ~ It's not really a recipe, 
it's just a combo of ingredients that work together wonderfully well! 
It is SO easy to make and gets rave reviews at my table. 
It can be adapted for those hot summer days by just cooking up
the baked potatoes on the BBQ ~ 
wrapped them up in tin foil and baked until done. 

That way, your house will stay cool, and you will have a hearty meal 
to feed those that are hungry for more than a salad! :)
Idaho Tacos

Baked potatoes ~ one per person

Scramble fried beef (or whatever meat you choose) 
with taco seasoning mix ~ I like to try to avoid the taco seasoning mix, 
so I seasoned the meat with cumin, chili powder, salt, garlic powder, 
onion powder and cayene pepper ~ to taste

Shredded cheese


Sour cream

Chopped green onions

Chopped tomatoes

Diced Avocado

Cut baked potatoes into slices on the plates,
sprinkle shredded cheese on top, then the beef and all the toppings ~ Voila!

Enjoy!! :)

Many Blessings,

Love you bunches, Linda

This is a new idea. Look terrific and I like your idea about bbqing the potatoes on the grill in the summer. Thanks for sharing!

Camille said...

Dear Jackie ~ I hope you enjoy it! And the idea came from someone else ~ it was a summer food ideas thing, so originally was meant for a hot day! :)

Thanks for this idea, Camille. We are really wanting to limit the grains we add back in after our elimination diet, and corn is the last in anyway. We love mexican and seems 'impossible' to live without our beloved organic tortilla chips, says one child LOL This might do the trick! Thanks

WooHoo! I hope it works Michelle! Have a lovely weekend.
