Tex-Mex Stuffed Potatoes Recipe

Although you can serve this as a side dish, it's filling enough to make a main course. Small gatherings are good occasions for my stuffed potatoes—they're so easy to throw together. Our 10-acre farm outside Toronto is nowhere near to the Southwest, of course. I love Mexican food, though, and this makes a nice alternative to tacos. I like its zesty taste, too.
