4 medium baking potatoes, scrubbed - $0.83

2 tsp. Meijer olive oil – on hand

½ onion, chopped - $0.51

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  Pierce the center of each potato with a paring knife.  Place potatoes directly on oven rack.  Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until fork-tender.  Remove from oven. 

2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat.  Add onion; cook and stir 3 minutes or until softened.  Add beef; cook and stir 10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink.  Season with pepper to taste.

3. Add recipe mix and 1-1/4 cups water; stir until well-combined.  Add peas and carrots; simmer 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened, stirring occasionally.

4. Cut potatoes open lengthwise.  Top each with 1 cup of the beef mixture, sprinkle with chives (if desired), and serve.
