These Baby Potato Bites with Chorizo are by no means diet food but I like keeping them small so you can eat a lot without having to commit to any one thing (perfect for a tailgate or a potluck). Though, let's be real, most the time, I sit in front of a tray of these guys and swipe them through the sour cream with abandon and then sip this Grapefruit Beer Mimosa to wash it down. 

Ingredients

  • 20 small baby potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon canola, grapeseed, or peanut oil
  • kosher salt and Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces Mexican chorizo
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 medium green onions (aka scallions)

    thinly sliced

  • sour cream

    for garnish

Instructions

Heat the oven to 425°F and arrange a rack in the upper third. Place potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with oil, season with salt, and toss to coat. Roast until potatoes are fork tender, about 30 minutes.

Set potatoes aside until cool enough to handle. Meanwhile, heat a medium nonstick frying pan to medium heat and cook chorizo, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Slice potatoes in half and, using a melon baler or small spoon, scoop out most of the interior (leave about 1/4-inch of potato flesh). Divide chorizo among the skins and top with cheese. Bake until skins are warmed through and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven, garnish with green onions, and pass sour cream on the side.
