As the holidays approach, I know we all have a lot of planning to do! I have some simple, delicious dishes that will be sure to be a family favorite. This time of the year is meant to be fun and easy, so making dishes with the whole family and getting everyone involved can help ease the pressure in the kitchen. I opt for classics that aren’t super labor intensive that I know everyone will love so we can focus on sharing our lives and our love for each other. Baked potatoes are one of those staples at holiday meals and I love to jam pack them with flavor. This is a twist on a dish I grew up eating, incorporating Cacique® Pork Chorizo to spice up that humble potato. My Abuela used to make a potato and chorizo dish for us every weekend for breakfast, so I am carrying on the tradition with this recipe. This is the ultimate comfort food to me and I love how easy this is to make for big family gatherings, it also makes for amazing leftovers. In addition to all the deliciousness inside, the Cacique® Chipotle Sour Cream on top gives the perfect creamy and spicy combo to make this a seriously addicting dish.
Growing up in Texas, we had so many iterations of potato dishes to go with all the amazing grilled meats we made. The baked potato has always been my favorite because you can add different ingredients and mix it up. Keeping the skin on allows you to get all the vitamins and nutrients, and we all need as much of that around the holidays as we can get. You can load these potatoes up with all the seasonal items that you love while you are share a meal with the ones you love. This is all about gathering family and friends to dine and catch up using the freshest Mexican ingredients you can get, which is Cacique® of course.
