Crispy Potato Skins With Black Bean Salsa

3 Medium Size Russet Potatoes, scrubbed
Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
About 1 ½ to 2 Cups Of Shredded Cheese (Monterey Jack & Cheddar)


Black Bean Salsa
1 Can (15oz/425g) Organic Black Beans, rinsed and drained
1 Can (12oz/341ml) Organic Corn Kernels, drained
¼ of Medium Red Onion, finely diced
2 Tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 Jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped
A small handful of Fresh Coriander, finely chopped
Lime Juice, about 3 Tbsp
2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sea Salt, to taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Method

Preheat the oven to 450˚F.


Make the salsa: In a large bowl, combine black beans, corn kernels, tomatoes, onion, Jalapeno and coriander. Season the salsa with lime juice, olive oil, sea salt and pepper. Refrigerate the salsa mixture until ready to serve.

Baked Potato Skins: Place the potatoes on a large baking tray. Bake the potatoes for 40 to 50 minutes, or until softened. Remove from the oven and let the potatoes cool slightly. 

Cut each potato into quarters and scoop out the flesh and leaving about ¼ inch of the potato skin. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and brush the potato inside out with olive oil and season with sea salt and black pepper. Then bake in the oven for about 18 to 20 minutes on until they are crisp. 

Scatter the crisp potatoes with cheese, (as much as you like) and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly and top the potato skins with black bean salsa.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
