INGREDIENT LIST

Serves 10

1.5 lbs 95% ground beef

5 medium potatoes

1 tsp minced garlic

1 Ranch seasoning packet

1 1/4 cup shredded cheese or 5 slices Follow Your Heart 

1/2 TBS olive oil

1/2 cup green onion, chopped 

1 large green bell pepper 

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Set oven to 425 and line baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly with non stick spray.

  • Cut potatoes in half vertically and poke with a fork. Lay flat side down on baking sheet and use 1/2 TBS olive oil to lightly coat the outside. 

    • Bake for about 30-35 minutes​

  • While potatoes are baking, start the filling. Chop bell pepper into fajita like strips and sauté with green onion and garlic. Cook until peppers are soft.

  • In a separate pan, cook beef. As it begins to brown, add in cooked pepper mix. 

  • When beef is close to browned, drain liquid and then add ranch packet. Mix into beef and peppers well until beef is fully cooked. Set aside.

  • When potatoes are done, flip over and lightly mash them a little flatter as if you were about to load up a baked potato. 

  • Put 1/2 cup beef/pepper mix on each potato half and 2 TBS cheese. 

  • Finish by placing back in oven only for cheese to melt.
