  2. Bake the potatoes at 350 for 45-60 minutes.

  3. Combine all the seasonings in a small bowl.

  4. Brown either the ground beef or the vegan chorizo. Drain it and set aside.

  6. Add in the black beans and your meat of choice. Cook until warm. 

  7. For the topping, combine the greek yogurt, lime juice, and cilantro. 

  8. Assemble the potatoes by cutting them in half, adding in 1/4 of the filling per potato, and dollop with the topping!


Notes

These are the main ingredients you’ll need to make my Mexican potatoes recipe. This works as a side dish for up to four people, but feel free to double the recipe if you’re entertaining guests.

The potatoes can be any size, I usually try for medium-sized ones for even cooking!

I get my Upton’s Chorizo at my local Target but you might be lucky enough to find it elsewhere!

You can use regular frozen corn but I like the fire roasted, it adds a nice extra layer of flavor to the dish.
