Baked potatoes with a Mexican or Greek inspired topping make for an easy and comforting supper. Just add salad!
Scrub and pierce potatoes with a fork in several spots. Place potatoes directly on the oven rack or on a baking sheet. Bake in 450°F (230°C) for 45 minutes or until soft when pressed. Meanwhile, prepare a Topping.
Baked Potato Toppings:
Fajita Treat: In a medium bowl, combine 2 diced Ontario Greenhouse Tomatoes, 2 chopped green onions and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) hot pepper sauce. Divide topping over baked potatoes; top each potato with 1 tbsp (15 mL) each Ontario Sour Cream and shredded Ontario Cheddar Cheese.
Greek Salad Salsa: In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup (250 mL) diced Ontario Greenhouse Cucumber with 1/2 cup (125 mL) crumbled Ontario Feta cheese, 1/4 cup (50 mL) each chopped Ontario Onion and celery, and 2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped black olives. Toss with 3 tbsp (45 mL) favourite low fat oil and vinegar dressing; spoon evenly over baked potatoes.
