    In 4- to 5-quart saucepan, add potatoes and enough water to cover potatoes. Heat to boiling; cover. Reduce heat. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until tender; drain. Transfer potatoes onto pan. Using potato masher or bottom of glass, carefully smash each potato until slightly flattened.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix olive oil with remaining 1 tablespoon taco seasoning mix. Brush tops of flattened potatoes with oil mixture. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and slightly crispy. Top potatoes with cheese; return to oven 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
