Stuffed Salsa Verde Potatoes with Leftover Turkey
I needed to use some leftover turkey, and had a lot of potatoes, Anaheim chile peppers, and salsa verde that I had made. I think it turned out pretty good.
- Serves: 4 persons
- 4medium potatoes
- ¾cup shredded or cubed cooked turkey
- ¾cup green salsa
- 1anaheim pepper, raw
- ½cup sour cream, or more to taste
- 2tablespoons cream cheese, softened
- 2tablespoons butter, softened
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 4tablespoons shredded Mexican cheese blend, or to taste
Step 1Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Prick potatoes several times with a fork and place onto a baking sheet.
Step 2Bake in the preheated oven until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly; leave oven on.
Step 3Mix turkey, salsa, and chile pepper together in a bowl.
Step 4Make a slice in the top of each potato and scoop out the inside. Place in a bowl and mash. Add turkey-salsa mixture, sour cream, cream cheese, butter, salt, and pepper; mix to desired consistency. Fill potatoes with mixture and sprinkle Mexican cheese on top.
Step 5Return to the oven and bake until heated through, about 15 minutes.
