Loaded potatoes are sinfully delicious, but not what you want to dig into on a typical Monday night. Want an easy, affordable, healthier twist? Add some Mexican flair: Whip up some taco-stuffed smashed potatoes.
“These crispy, roasted smashed potatoes are loaded with potassium and fiber, and packed with lean ground beef,” says Julie Andrews, R.D.N., a recipe developer based in Appleton, WI.
For an extra few bucks, you can add your favorite taco toppings, like avocado and green onions, but this recipe features minimal ingredients for a simple and affordable dinner.
