MEXICAN STYLE BAKED POTATO

MEXICAN STYLE BAKED POTATO

HAVE I TOLD YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE BAKED POTATOES?

They are a perfect food, ya’ll.

Delicious. Nutrient packed. And filling.

I love eating foods that actually fill me up so I am not starving 25 minutes after a meal.

*cough* salad *cough*

In our household, baked potatoes can either be a side dish, or the main course. When we load ’em up like this Mexican Style potato, we usually just eat them alone. 

Feel free to make your own decision on the matter. I mean, we do still live in a free country. 

This is an easy, inexpensive twist on the classic baked potato, by spicing it up a bit with some Mexican flavor.

To start, you need to start with the perfect Baked Potato. Check out my method here.

 

MEXICAN STYLE BAKED POTATO

  • 4-5 Medium Sized Baked Potatoes
  • 1 can Re-fried Beans (or 2-3 cups homemade)
  • 4 Small Snacking Peppers or 2 Large Bell Peppers (any colors)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Real Butter (split)
  • 2 Small or 1 Regular Sized Avocado
  • 1-2 Drops Lime Essential Oil or Juice from a Lime

 

INSTRUCTIONS: 

1. Once your baked potato is about 3/4 of the way finished cooking in the oven, start heating the re-fried beans up on the stove.

 

2. Slice up your peppers in strips and saute them in 1 Tablespoon of butter. Cook until they are soft (about 10 minutes). Once the peppers are cooked through, I usually turn up the heat a little higher and cook until they get that nice black color to them.  Once finished, remove from heat and add 1-2 Tablespoons of enchilada sauce (this is optional). You can use red or green sauce. It just gives it a boost of flavor.

 

3. Next, mash up avocados and add 1-2 drops therapeutic-grade only Lime Essential Oil or squeeze in a little lime juice. Mix together.

 

4. To assemble:

  • Slice the top of your potato with a small slit, take a pair of tongs (I like these) and squeeze the sides of the baked potato so that a little hole is formed. You don’t want to cut the potato in half, because you want to stuff it.
  • Next, add a little butter, because no baked potato is complete without butter. Ever.
  • Add a scoop of beans.
  • Then a scoop of avocado.
  • Next layer on some bell peppers, and top it off with some sliced jalapenos or banana peppers.
