Potatoes…loaded. Need I say more? This recipe sprang from a nacho platter and a potato making sweet satisfying love. If that’s too graphic for you just call this recipe a “fusion of flavors”. These will have you saying “Muy deliciosa“! Look at you making a new recipe and learning Spanish.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes to 1 hr depending on your tuber
Serves: 4 people
4 medium sized potatoes or sweet potatoes
1 lb ground beef, chicken, turkey
1 large cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, de-seeded/ finely chopped
1 tbsp cumin seeds, smashed
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 cup water
Sea salt and Black pepper to taste
1 tbsp unrefined virgin coconut oil or grass-fed butter
Chives or green onion, diced
Cilantro, rough chopped
Greek yogurt, dolloped
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Take a fork and punch a few holes in your chosen tuber (that’s a potato folks). Place them in the oven and let them hang out in there until they are tender.
Next heat up a pan with coconut oil or butter. Once melted add in your ground meat. Let it brown and once cooked thoroughly drain. You may find depending on the meat you use there is very little if anything to drain so you can skip this step. Now add in garlic, jalapeno, cumin, chili powder, smoked paprika, sea salt, black pepper and lastly water. Give it a good stir to get all the flavor bits on the bottom of the pan loosened. Cook for another few minutes until the garlic is soft and then take off the heat.
Take your baked potato or sweet potato and cut a little triangle wedge, lengthwise, at the top and remove it to make a place for you toppings to sit. Now start layering your fixings beginning with the ground meat and ending however you like.
Take a step back to admire your creation and Enjoy!
