Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.

THIS quick-and-easy recipe fits in well with a busy schedule. Along with a garden salad, it makes a nice light meal for two, but when we want something more filling, I'll serve this potato with a small broiled steak. -Linda Brausen, Janesville, Wisconsin


  • 1 large baking potato
  • 1/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream


  1. Scrub and pierce potato; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 3-4 minutes on each side or until tender; set aside.
  2. Crumble meat into a shallow microwave-safe bowl; add onion. Cover and microwave on high for 1-1/2-2 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, stirring once; drain. Stir in salsa and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Cut potato in half lengthwise; fluff pulp with fork. Top each half with meat mixture, cheese and sour cream.
<B>Editor's Note:</B> To prepare in a conventional oven, bake potato at 400&deg; for 40 minutes or until tender. Cook beef and onion in a skillet until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in salsa and Worcestershire sauce. Assemble as directed.
