Ideal For: Dinner

Cook time: 
Total time: 

Ingredients Ingredients

  • 2 Large baking potatoes
  • 3.5 oz Cheddar cheese (any other cheese will do)
  • 1tsp Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste
  • Handful of dill (or other fresh herb)
  • 3.5 oz Chorizo
  • 2 Scallions
  • 5fl oz Sour cream (or creme fraiche)
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 425C.
  2. Scrub the potatoes, rub skin in a little olive oil, salt & pepper then prick them all over with a fork and place in the oven (you can start them in the microwave for a few minutes on each side to make things quicker). Without microwave = approx. 45-60 mins / With microwave = approx. 20-30 mins.
  3. Once cooked, cut them in half lengthways and, using a cloth to hold them, scoop out the flesh in to a large mixing bowl, leaving about half a centimetre all over so as to give the skins a little more strength.
  4. Melt a knob of butter and stir in a little olive oil. Brush this over the inside and outside of the skins, then sprinkle with salt & pepper. Place on a tray skin side up and return to the oven to crisp up. Keep your eye on them as you don't want them to burn.
  5. Meanwhile, chop the chorizo in to tiny chunks and add to a frying pan (no need for oil as it will release plenty). Cook until nicely crispy.
  6. To the potato flesh, add chorizo (hold a little back for garnish), grated cheddar, chopped scallion, Gran Luchito Smoked Chilli Paste, chopped dill (hold a little back for garnish), a knob of butter, salt and pepper. Stir well, taste and adjust seasoning.
  7. Once crispy, flip skins and crisp up the inside then remove from oven.
  8. Using a spoon, fill each skin with the mixture and return to the oven for about 7 minutes (or until the cheese is melted).
  9. Chop more dill and stir through sour cream.
  10. Remove and top with a dollop of herby sour cream, the remaining chorizo and dill and a pinch of salt and pepper.
