Beefy Salsa Topped Baked Potatoes

1 lb lean ground beef
2 large baking potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup Ortega® Salsa Prima Homestyle Mild
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 green onion, sliced

Scrub potatoes; pierce each with a fork in several places. Microwave at HIGH 8 to 10 minutes or until tender, rotating ¼ turn after 4 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
Meanwhile cook ground beef and onion in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring occasionally; drain. Add salsa, stirring to combine and continue cooking 3 to 4 minutes.

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; break up and fluff pulp with fork. Season with salt, if desired.
Spoon an equal amount of beef mixture over each potato half. Top with an equal amount of cheese and garnish with green onion.
