Super spuds! Stuffed with meat and lots more, these potatoes are a meal in themselves.
Updated Jan 31, 2010

Ingredients

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1/4 cup chive-and-onion sour cream potato topper (from 12-oz container)
  • 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup frozen whole kernel corn
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 2 green onions, sliced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 plum (Roma) tomato, chopped
  • Thinly sliced chives, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Pierce potatoes with fork; place on microwavable paper towel in microwave oven. Microwave on High 8 to 10 minutes, turning after 4 to 5 minutes, until tender. Let stand about 5 minutes until cool enough to handle.
  • 2
    Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out about 2 tablespoons of pulp from center of each half; place in medium bowl. Reserve potato shells. Mash potato pulp with fork. Stir in sour cream; set aside.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, cook beef, salt and pepper over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in corn, tomato sauce, onions and tomato. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot and bubbly.
  • 4
    Spoon beef mixture into potato shells. Top each with about 1/4 cup potato and sour cream mixture. Place on microwavable platter. Microwave uncovered on High 4 to 6 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately. Top with chives.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Baking potatoes have low moisture and high starch content. Known as russet or Idaho potatoes, they are characterized by their long, slightly rounded shape and rough brown skin.
  • tip 2
    If you can't find chive-and-onion sour cream potato topper, plain sour cream will do.
