Makes 4 1/2 dozen

Sausage-Stuffed Fingerling Potatoes are a treat by themselves, but when served alongside this Chipotle Lime Guacamole, they are taken to a whole new level.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 6 ounces smoked spicy sausage, finely chopped
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) finely grated sharp Cheddar cheese
  • Chipotle-Lime Guacamole
  • Garnish: chopped chives

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Toss potatoes in olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake 25 minutes or until tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

  2. Meanwhile, cook sausage in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until brown. Drain on paper towels.

  3. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out pulp, leaving shells intact. Combine potato pulp, sausage, and cheese in a bowl. Season with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  4. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon potato mixture into each potato shell. Arrange on a lightly greased baking sheet.

  5. Bake 15 minutes or until heated through. Serve with Chipotle-Lime Guacamole. Garnish potatoes, if desired.
