Chorizo and Cheddar Potato Skins Appetizer


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Pierce the potatoes with a fork several times and place them on a rack. Bake for 50 minutes or until they can be easily pierced. Set on a rack to cool.
  • Once cooled, slice in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out the insides. Leave a quarter-inch lining each potato. Remember, you can use the scooped-out parts for mash potatoes. 
  • Brush both sides of the potato skins with melted butter and season with salt and pepper. 
  • Place the skins on a cookie sheet skin-side-up and broil for two minutes, then flip and broil for an additional two minutes. Watch the skins to make sure they don’t overcook. Remove and set aside. 
  • Over medium heat, cook the chorizo for about five to seven minutes.
  • Using a spoon, add a scoop of chorizo into each hollowed-out potato, top with two tablespoons of cheese, and broil for four to five minutes or until the cheese is fully melted. 
  • Remove from the oven, garnish with sour cream and chives, and serve.
  • Enjoy!
