Baked Tex-Mex Potato With Pico De Gallo

This was a pretty busy sports weekend. We had the football AFC & NFC divisional playoffs earlier, and the first major tennis Grand Slam got started for the new year, the Australian Open. Naturally, I knew that I was going to be glued to the television and so, I decided to bake this Baked Tex-Mex Potato With Pico De Gallo in advance. This is a really scrumptious snack that you can prepare well ahead, the potatoes and the salsa, with ample time to spare before intending to serve. Just pop the layered cheese potatoes in the oven for 10 minutes. Serve with lots of refreshing salsa and you have an addictive baked cheese potatoes ready to be enjoyed!

Baked Tex-Mex Potato With Pico De Gallo


About 900 g Roasted Potatoes (I used small tricolor potatoes)(click here for the recipe, quartered the potato and omit the rosemary)
200 g Tex-Mex Cheese (combination of Jalapeno Jack, Cheddar, and Mozzarella cheese)
Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
2 Scallions, chopped
Pico De Gallo-Mexican Salsa (click here for the recipe)


Preheat the oven to 400˚F.

Lightly grease 4 small or 1 large shallow baking dishes with olive oil. Layer the potatoes in the baking dish followed by the cheese, sea salt, and black pepper. Repeat another layer.

Bake the potatoes in the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted. Remove from the oven, and top with chopped scallions. Serve the potatoes with Pico De Gallo.
