1hr 30mins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F Pierce the potatoes all over with the tines of a fork. Place the potatoes directly on the oven rack and bake for about an hour, until tender and baked through. Remove the potatoes from the oven and let them sit for about 20 minutes, until they are cool enough to handle.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper to the skillet and saute for about 4 minutes. Add the cilantro, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, coriander, oregano, and vegetable blend to the skillet and continue to cook for about 5 minutes, until thoroughly heated. Split the baked potatoes and spoon in about a cup of the bean mixture to each potato. Garnish as desired and serve.
  3. Garnishes: grated cheddar cheese, fresh chopped cilantro, chopped green onions, sour cream, salsa.
