Instant Pot Taco Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Mexican food is usually an easy go-to for dinner, right? The options are seemingly endless for using the same core flavors.

Taco dishes are also great because everyone can tailor-make them to their desired tastes. Once the base is made, the toppings are all optional! This makes Instant Pot Taco Stuffed Baked Potatoes an ideal option for picky eaters, too.

Ingredients to Make Instant Pot Taco Stuffed Baked Potatoes

I love adding potatoes to a dish to make it more filling! Potatoes tend to be generally enjoyed, plus they are fairly inexpensive, so it’s a win-win.

Necessities: red potatoes, ground beef, water, taco seasoning, red onion

Topping Ideas: tomato, cheese, sour cream, red onion, cilantro

Cooking potatoes in the instant pot is a whole new level of genius. No more wrapping, poking with a fork, and crossing your fingers that they are done! Just add water, the trivet, and the potatoes then cook under pressure for 30 minutes. So simple!

After the potatoes are done, you use the Instant Pot to cook the beef and onions, too. Who doesn’t love a recipe that dirties minimal dishes?

What Toppings Should I Use?

Depending on your family’s topping preferences, Instant Pot Taco Stuffed Baked Potatoes don’t take much, ingredient-wise. The basic meal only requires red potatoes, ground beef, water, taco seasoning, and red onion.

Your family as well as your budget will thank you for this delicious meal! For toppings, you can use tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, red onion, or even cilantro.
