Course Main Course
Cuisine American, Mexican
Servings 4 tacos


  • 4 russet potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt / pepper
  • 1 pound Mexican chorizo (uncooked chorizo)
  • 4 scallions (chopped)
  • 1 handful cilantro (choped)
  • 2 cups cheddar (grated)
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream
  • 5 black oilves sliced


  • First, poke holes all over potatoes with a fork (so the potato does not explode in microwave) and cook in microwave on potato setting.
  • Next, cook the chorizo in pan for 3 minutes. When cooked through add cilantro and scallions.
  • Now, take the hot potato and cut almost in half way through just leaving 1 inch uncut so potato stands up like taco shell. Sprinkle each potato with salt, pepper, and place butter in the potato.
  • Next, divide the chorizo mixture between all 4 potatoes.
  • Now, top with cheddar cheese, salsa, dollop of sour cream, olives, cilantro and scallions (feel free to use your favorite taco toppers).
  • Finally, cheers to easy recipes with a dash of gratitude.
