- 2 large potatoes
- 1 bag of basil
- 1 chorizo (or non-pork alternative)
- Some mature fancy cheese
- 1 avocado
- 1 packet of rocket
- 1 red onion
The ingredients are cheap. The type of cheese is up to you, get something you like. A mature cheddar works really well.
First step is super simple. Put the potatoes onto a tray and throw a little oil onto them. Cook in the oven for 45 minutes on 180C. While they cook, go do the washing or something.
Get the chorizo (or equivalent) out.
Chop it into small pieces.
Peel the red onion.
Slice it into evenly-sized pieces.
Put a frying pan on medium heat and throw in some oil.
Add the onions and chorizo.
The potatoes will take around 45 minutes, but be sure they're soft in the middle by poking a knife in.
Cut them in half and let them cool.
When they are cool enough to touch, scoop them out using a spoon.
The chorizo and onions should be exuding flavour at this stage. Throw in the potatoes that you've scooped out.
You'll be left with some potato skins looking like this.
Mix the potato, chorizo and onions together gently.
Add the entire bag of green stuff. This is to be moderately healthy and make it look all pretty.
Take your mixture off the heat. All you want to do is wilt the greens.
Grate in a good handful of cheese.
Pick the basil leaves away from the stalks.
Roll the leaves up and chop 'em nice and fine.
Mix the whole thing together. Throw in a bit of salt and pepper to taste.
You have the mix and the shells now. Guess what comes next?
Yep, you split the mix between the skins.
Grate a bit of cheese onto each one and pop them back in the oven for five minutes to heat them and melt the cheese.
While they are in the oven, grab the avocado. Make sure it's nice and ripe.
Cut it in half and remove the stone.
It should be soft and mushy. It's really important that you pick up a ripe one.
Chop it up roughly. Season with salt and pepper (and a little drizzle of good oil or lemon juice).
Grab the potatoes out of the oven.
Place them on the plate.
Add big, generous lashings of avocado in the middle and job's done. Serve immediately.
