Looking for a delicious, easy dinner idea? Try combining a classic baked potato with taco seasoned ground turkey! Don't forget all the toppings!


  • 6 russet potatoes
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ head lettuce, washed and chopped
  • 3 large roma tomatoes, diced
  • ¼ cup red onion, sliced
  • 1 cup colby-jack cheese, shredded
  • sour cream


  1. Bake potatoes in oven. I like to bake mine directly on the oven rack in a 375 degree F oven for about one hour (pierce potatoes with a fork first). Potatoes will vary in cook times depending on size.
  2. Meanwhile, cook ground turkey in a large skillet until browned. Drain. Add taco seasoning and water and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. To assemble, slice potatoes. Add ground turkey and cheese. Top with desired topping. ENJOY.
