  • 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
  • 1/4 fresh cilantro chopped
  • garlic salt taste
  • cumin to taste
  1. Combine all the ingredients for the salsa.
  2. Add about 1/4 tsp. of garlic salt and 1/2 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.
