Salsa & Cheddar Redskin Potatoes
- 5-6 medium size redskin potatoes scrubbed
- Salsa recipe to follow
- 1 C. shredded cheddar cheese
- salt & pepper to taste
- 4 medium ripe tomatoes diced
- 4-5 green onions
- 1 medium jalapeno chopped
- 1/4 fresh cilantro chopped
- garlic salt taste
- cumin to taste
Combine all the ingredients for the salsa.
Add about 1/4 tsp. of garlic salt and 1/2 tsp. of cumin. I like to combine all the ingredients and then taste.
Cover and place in the fridge to let the flavors combine for a few hours.
Place the freshly scrubbed redskins in a pot and cover with water.
Bring to a rolling boil and let boil for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are forkable.
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.
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.
Place the cooked potatoes in the baking dish and use a potato masher to gently press each potato down (see photo).
Add salt & pepper is desired.
Add salsa to the top of the potatoes and then the cheddar cheese (see photos).
Bake for 20-25 minutes in the oven.
Serve with salsa, green onions and sour cream.
