"This is a very easy and very filling weeknight meal and is easy to switch up depending on what is in the pantry. Toss the potato in the oven, turn on the game, and finish up at half time!"

We LOVED this recipe, but we made a few tweaks: 2 bell peppers, caramelized with the onions (butter, brown sugar, salt), and lite sour cream instead of yogurt. We also used ground turkey instead of veggie meat. Absolutely delicious!

I am very surprised this has not received more reviews. As it stands, it's a 5 star, but it leaves so much room to play w ingredients as well! We love it and make it often. We use ground beef or ground turkey -- sometimes I sauté fresh garlic with the veggies, and sometimes we add cilantro on top. This is great any night of the week but we do love it in the fall and winter on football days! In the summer we also use all of our ingredients from our local farmers market...even our organic beef. What a great recipe to utilize readily accessible staple ingredients! Our 3 kiddos love it too!

Used soy chorizo and it was muy fabuloso! It didn't need the yogurt (but it was good with it), as it was wonderful without it. The spiciness of the chorizo blended well with the sweetness of the potato.
