I have a fun recipe for you today. A twist on the classic recipe, these loaded Mexican Potato wedges are perfect for watching the big game or even just for an easy Friday night in. My kiddos loved to help with the toppings and I think it would even be fun to make individual pans/sections for each person. I grabbed all of my ingredients for this recipe at Albertsons, and the kids actually loved picking out which ingredients were “theirs.” I will put the full recipe at the end of the post.
Cut Potatoes into wedges. Spray a foil lined pan with cooking spray and spread out potatoes. Spray top of potatoes with cooking spray as well, season with salt and pepper and bake.
While potatoes are baking, brown the ground beef and add taco seasoning according to package instructions.
Add taco meat and cheese and pop back into the oven until melted. Then top with your favorite toppings.
Loaded Mexican Potato Wedges
2 large potatoes
1 lb. ground beef
1 packet Old El Paso Taco Seasoning
1 cup shredded cheese of choice (I used cheddar jack)
Toppings: scallions, tomatoes, peppers, cilantro, etc.
Dipping Sauces: sour cream, guacamole, salsa
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut Potatoes into wedges. Spray a foil lined pan with cooking spray and spread out potatoes. Spray top of potatoes with cooking spray as well, and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, turn over potatoes and bake for about another 15 minutes. While potatoes are baking, brown ground beef and add taco seasoning following the instructions on the packet. When potatoes are finished cooking, remove from oven and sprinkle half of the ground beef onto wedges. Cover generously with cheese and place back in oven for 4-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Add toppings and serve with dipping sauces.
