    This is something I make quite often around our house.  This dish was born out of sheer desperation to get something on the table for dinner.  I was scouring the fridge for anything that would be worthy of a meal and found some leftover baked potatoes and taco meat.  I added in some beans and topped it with some of the usual taco fixings and called it a meal!

    Needless to say the family loved it.

    I now make extra baked potatoes on purpose just to make this meal!  You could also make baked potatoes in the slow cooker and when you get home whip up some taco meat and you will have this on the table in about 20 minutes.  Feel free to use ground turkey in place of the ground beef and use whatever beans you have on hand.  This meal is very adaptable!
