Looking for a weeknight meal that comes together in a snap? These Mexican-style baked potatoes combine all the fun flavours of Mexico into a meal the whole family will love.

Recipe developed in partnership with Ontario Beef.


  • 6 large russet potatoes
  • 8 oz (227g) fresh crimini mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 lb (225g) lean ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 package of Tex-Mex seasoning
  • 2 tbsp adobo peppers in chipotle sauce, puréed
  • 1 can (769 mL) diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup (250 mL) frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) fresh chopped cilantro


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F/204°C. Pierce potatoes, several times, with a fork and place them on a baking tray. Bake for 45-60 minutes, or until softened all the way through.
  2. While potatoes bake, place mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.
  3. In a large saucepan, brown mushrooms, onion and beef, for approximately 10 minutes. Add garlic, Tex-Mex seasoning, adobo peppers and tomatoes. Simmer for 15-20 minutes allowing flavours to combine and sauce to thicken.
  4. Split baked potatoes lengthwise and spoon in the meat mixture. Top with black beans, corn cheddar cheese and chopped cilantro. Serve with a side of salsa, sour cream and guacamole.
