Expert Tips

When placing picadillo into the potato skin, use a slotted spoon to drain the liquid out of the picadillo.

Some days I feel like I’m just a regular ol’ meat-and-potatoes kind of gal. Don’t get me wrong; I still enjoy experimenting in my kitchen with exotic ingredients or combining different things that would never seem to go together to see if I can come up with a tasty item. I’ve always found the culinary-unknown fun and exciting. But like I said, some days I just want something hearty, traditional and easy to make. Check out my recipe for picadillo potato skins. Picadillo is a very traditional Latin dish and when combined with an American favorite like potato skins, it acquires the aforementioned requirements I was talking about: yummy, hearty, easy to make and your basic meat and potatoes. Happiness I know best!

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Wash and clean the outside of the potato by running it under warm water and scrub with a brush to remove all dirt. Dry them.
  • 3 Brush the potatoes with the olive oil using a pastry brush. Then sprinkle them with salt.
  • 4 Bake potatoes on a cookie sheet for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
  • 5 Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  • 6 While potatoes are baking, add ground beef and ground pork in a large frying pan over a medium flame, and break up meat with a spatula. Cook for 5 minutes.
  • 7 Add in garlic, onion, tomatoes, yellow chiles, garlic salt, seasoning salt and dried jalapeños. Mix to combine and continue to cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
  • 8 Add in beef broth and allow it to come to a boil. Lower flame and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • 9 Slice potatoes in half and with a spoon scoop out the center of each half.
  • 10 Then take a heaping tablespoon of picadillo and fill the center of the potato with it.
  • 11 Serve immediately. Enjoy!
