Loaded Southwestern Baked Potato

Remember last night's Chipotle Slow Cooker Pork? I told you we would enjoy it in an entirely different way tonight. 

Tonight I baked two HUGE baking potatoes. Please don't wrap in foil to bake them. They will only steam inside their foil wrapping. Lightly coat the potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Pierce a few times with a fork and bake in a 400 degree oven for an hour or so until cooked all the way through.

I have found my new favorite cheese! This has so much potential! Tacos, burritos, chili topping....see?  YUM! But for tonight, it was PERFECTION on this loaded baked potato.

When the potatoes are baked then the "loading" can begin.  You can go hog wild with toppings. See what I did there?  Hog wild....I used pork as a topping..well, there ya go.

I used a little butter and salt and pepper to begin the process. After warming a serving of the chipotle pork it was layered on the potato, covered with a nice handful of the hot habanero cheese, a little sour cream, another sprinkling of pepper and how about some chives?

If you've got some jalapenos and want to really raise the heat level, add them! 

And yes, there's STILL chipotle pork remaining for another meal....TBA of course!

  1. I'm going to look for that cheese. We are rats at our house.
    The potato looks delicious.
