  • 1 lb Wisconsin potatoes
  • 1/2 lb cooked ground beef
  • 1 cup grated Jalapeno Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Serve with salsa if desired


  • While cooking the beef, season with 1 tsp Fajita Seasoning (if fajita seasoning is not available use 1⁄4 tsp garlic powder, 1⁄4 tsp oregano and a little salt and chili pepper to taste).
  • Bake or microwave potatoes until done, (about 6-10 minutes on high in the microwave) or bake in oven at 425 for 30 minutes. Cut in half, allow to cool slightly.
  • Scoop some of the flesh out of the Potato centers, leaving about 1⁄2” of the flesh next to the skin. Fill each potato half with cooked and seasoned Ground Beef and top with Jalapeno Jack Cheese.
  • Place under the broiler until cheese is melted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the oven and top each half with Sour Cream.
  • Sprinkle chopped tomato & chopped cilantro on top of each and serve. Add a bowl of salsa on the table, spoon salsa over warm potato nachos.
  • Enjoy the guilt-free nacho taste in a potato!
