2 pounds red potatoes
2 tablespoons Old El Paso taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
Optional: crumbled bacon and chopped green onion for garnish

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Preheat oven to 350°F.  Cube potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes.

2:  In a large bowl, stir together ranch, taco seasoning, and half of the cheddar cheese.

3:  Add in potatoes and stir well to coat them with the sauce.

4:  Add potatoes to a large baking dish. Cover the dish with foil and bake them at 350°F for 45 minutes.

5:  Remove foil and stir potatoes well. Return to the oven uncovered for another 20 minutes or until potatoes are crispy.

6:  Remove potatoes and sprinkle with other half of cheddar cheese.  Garnish with crumbled bacon and chopped green onions if desired.

Darlene’s Tips: Want them spicy?  Add a bit of cayenne pepper to the mix. You could also add chopped jalapeno peppers as garnish.  You can totally use white potatoes if you want, does not have to be red. You could also try different dressing flavors. Experiment!
