Serves: 5
Ingredients
  • 5-6 medium size redskin potatoes, scrubbed
  • Salsa (recipe to follow)
  • 1 C. shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
Salsa Ingredients!
  • 4 medium ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 4-5 green onions
  • 1 medium jalapeno, chopped
  • ¼ fresh cilantro, chopped
  • garlic salt taste
  • cumin to taste
Instructions
  1. Combine all the ingredients for the salsa.
  2. Add about ¼ tsp. of garlic salt and ½ tsp. of cumin. I like to combine all the ingredients and then taste.
  3. Cover and place in the fridge to let the flavors combine for a few hours.
  4. Place the freshly scrubbed redskins in a pot and cover with water.
  5. Bring to a rolling boil and let boil for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are forkable.
  6. While the potatoes are cooking through, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8x8 or 9x9 baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Once the potatoes are cooked through remove the pot from the stove and drain the water. Let the potatoes cool a few minutes as they are hot.
  8. Place the cooked potatoes in the baking dish and use a potato masher to gently press each potato down (see photo).
  9. Add salt & pepper is desired.
  10. Add salsa to the top of the potatoes and then the cheddar cheese (see photos).
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes in the oven.
  12. Serve with salsa, green onions and sour cream.

Creamy Cheesy Broccoli Soup

I confess that soup is a weakness of mine. From our creamy Macaroni and Cheese Soup to the classic upscale Slow Cooker Guinness French Onion Soup, I am always a fan. I love being able to sit down to a warm bowl of soup after a long day, and even more love that this broccoli soup is a perfect option for lunches. With such a simple recipe, this is going to be a favorite for your family.

I love the idea of using a dutch oven to make this recipe. It is actually one of my favorite kitchen tools. A dutch oven is a great beautiful and functional pot for use on the stovetop, in the oven, and straight to the table. Of course, I am going to want fewer dishes. So, making this broccoli soup in a pretty dutch oven, then sitting in the oven on warm until dinner time is ideal. I can bring it directly to the table to serve easily.
