New Mexican Potato Boats

New Mexican Potato Boats

Three large or four medium russet potatoes, sliced in 1/2 lengthwise. Brush with olive oil and season on both sides with Kosher salt. 
Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake at 360° for 45 minutes. 
Dice a yellow onion and mince two cloves of garlic. 
Heat a skillet with some olive oil and sauté until onions start to soften. Add 1 pound of ground beef (I like 80/20) brown meat. 
Add 2 tbsp tomato paste. 
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp FCC Red Chile powder
1/2 cup FCC Pure Green Chile
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp black pepper
About 1/2 tsp Mexican oregano

Cook for a couple of minutes on medium-low heat
Add 1/2 cup of water and simmer for 10 minutes. Check for seasonings. I added a bit more salt, about 1/4 of a tsp or so. 
Add about 1 cup frozen corn.
Scoop out the potatoes leaving about 1/4 inch of potato attached to the skin. Mix scooped potatoes in with the beef mixture.
Fill potato boats with meat mixture and top with cheese of your choice. We used a Mexican blend.
Bake at 360° for 12 minutes until cheese is melted.  Garnish with more chiles, your favorite from FCC, sour cream, scallions, cilantro. Delicious!
