Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Scrub potato well with stiff-bristled brush, and rinse.
  • 2
    Place two chopsticks or two wooden spoon handles parallel to each other a few inches apart. Place potato, widest side down, between chopsticks. Use sharp knife to cut deep slits, about 1/4-inch apart, crosswise into potato, cutting most of the way down, but not all the way through, using chopsticks as a guide. In small bowl, stir melted butter and taco seasoning mix together. Brush potato all over with spiced butter, making sure to get some butter into cuts. Place on cookie sheet.

    Bake about 1 hour or until potato is tender throughout. The cuts in the potato should open like an accordion. Brush with additional butter, making sure each cut gets buttered. Bake 5 minutes. Serve with any toppings you like.
