  • 6 medium-sized red potatoes, sliced into 1/2-inch coins
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp taco seasoning
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese

Topping ideas

  • 8 slices turkey bacon, chopped (or regular bacon works)
  • Black beans, rinsed and drained
  • red pepper, diced
  • Corn
  • Jalapeno peppers, sliced
  • green onions, sliced


  • Preheat BBQ to 500 degrees (high heat). Slice potatoes and rinse to remove starch. Dry off as best as possible with a clean towel or paper towel, then transfer to a large bowl and toss with olive oil, taco seasoning, garlic powder and salt.
  • Create two little foil pack pouches and divide potatoes between the two. If everyone wants their own individual pack, create four packs and divide potatoes. I create two foil packs because one foil pack with that many potatoes is more likely to break, but I don't want the hassle of creating too many so I do two, but it's up to you and what you prefer. Once you have created pouches and added potatoes, place another foil sheet overtop and seal (see video if you're unsure how to do this)
  • Grill foil packs on BBQ for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and add cheese, then desired toppings. Return to grill for another 5 minutes, then serve and enjoy! Note: I usually add green onions last because I like them fresh, but it's up to you.
