Baked Potato with Salsa

potato recipes

The holidays are fast approaching once again and for many of us we have parties, pot lucks and family gatherings. The best part of all of these is the food, the variety of the food selection is enough to put on a few pounds just looking at all the options. The one thing I have always noticed is the lack of a good side and what better side to add to the selection then a baked potato. I have never been a big fan of sour cream but salsa well that is a different story so I decided to create a side of the popular baked potato dish and salsa. Your potato will end up the talk of the party. The potatoes of choice for baking should always be russet, it is the option that I feel is the best for baking this type of dish. The salsa should be thick and chunky and I chose to pick the medium flavour but you can go hot or mild. A baking dish works best for cooking and you will not need many ingredients, unless your thing is to have the toppings falling off the potato.
