Cooking with CESI: Super Potatoes

If you have a busy household and still want to put a hearty meal on the table that everyone will love, look no further than these yummy “super potatoes”. At my house, this is a favorite meal that can be thrown together effortlessly, and my 4 kids always cheer when it is on the menu. The approximate cost for a family of 4 to make this meal is less than $10, depending on the toppings you choose. You can spin this meal several different ways by choosing alternative toppings. We’ve made taco potatoes with taco meat, black beans, cheese and green onions. We’ve made chili and cheese potatoes, we’ve even made fajita potatoes with chicken, peppers, onions, salsa and cheese. Get creative and give your family a fun meal that won’t bust your budget 🙂
