  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed potato)


  • 6 medium baking potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped jalapeño pepper
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (15.25-ounce) can whole-kernel corn, drained
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 tablespoons crema Mexicana


Preheat oven to 375°.

Pierce potatoes with a fork, and bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender. Cool potatoes slightly.

Cook cumin seeds in a small skillet over medium heat 1 minute or until toasted. Combine cumin seeds and next 6 ingredients (through garlic) in a medium bowl; stir well.

Split potatoes lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, other side. Spoon 1/4 cup corn mixture into each potato. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon crema Mexicana.
