GF Din Baked Potato ChorizoThe Spring rain is falling and we want warm and spicy comfort food! This is an easy recipe to make for a family or group of hungry friends any day of the week.  Gluten Free Baked Potatoes Stuffed with Chorizo can be served alone as a hearty meal with a side salad. If you have a really hungry group serve with your favorite fire grilled steak!

Gluten Free Baked Potatoes Stuffed with Chorizo

3-4 medium size Idaho Russet Potatoes

2 1/4 cups Tillamook 4 Cheese Mexican shredded

2 yellow peppers

2 orange peppers

2 red peppers

2 yellow onions

2 Tbs roasted garlic chopped

3 Tbs butter

3 Tbs olive oil

sea salt

black pepper

Aji Amarillo pepper dried

1 package Uli’s Famous Sausage – Spanish Chorizo or Chorizo Picante

Wash and pierce the potatoes and bake them in the oven at 425 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour.  When the potatoes are done, place the potatoes on a rack to cool for 5 minutes.  While wearing hot pads or gloves, carefully slice the potatoes in half lengthwise and place them in a baking pan.

peppers onions saute

While the potatoes are baking, sauté the onions and peppers with some olive oil in a pan over medium heat.  Set aside when done.  Cook the chorizo in the pan

Use a spoon to scoop out the potato and place it into a medium size bowl. Add butter, sea salt, black pepper, Aji Amarillo pepper, garlic, 1/4 cup of cheese and mix together.

To make this recipe use non-dairy Earth Balance butter and Daiya Non Dairy Pepperjack and Cheddar Cheese.

Scoop out the seasoned potato mixture and place it back into the skins.  Add the cooked Spanish Chorizo on top and add the peppers and onions just before serving.  I like to make extra and freeze them in self sealing freezer bags.  They heat back up perfectly in the microwave or oven fast and delicious! Make some Gluten Free Baked Potatoes Stuffed with Chorizo, you will be glad you did! 

I like to use Tillamook products because they are a local company from Tillamook, Oregon.  Over 100 years they have been making the freshest, best tasting natural cheeses in the USA. Tillamook has great company values, working with farmers and cleaning up the communities they work within.  For more information about Tillamook products that are Gluten Free, please go to their website.

I copied the information posted on the Tillamook site, asking about specific Gluten Free products.

Do any of your dairy products contain gluten?

Just a few of our products contain gluten. All of our cheese, yogurt, sour cream and butter products are gluten-free (hooray!).

Most Tillamook Ice Cream is gluten-free, too. HOWEVER, flavors that include ingredients like pie, dough, or cake are NOT GLUTEN FREE. Specifically, THESE TILLAMOOK FLAVORS CONTAIN GLUTEN – Caramel Toffee Crunch, Cookies and Cream, Cookie Dough, German Chocolate Cake, Sweet Centennial, Marionberry Pie, Sticky Bun, and Grandma’s Cake Batter. 

PLEASE READ THE LABEL BEFORE BUYING ANY PRODUCTS.  INGREDIENTS MAY CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.

I hope you enjoy this easy Gluten Free comfort food recipe for Celiac Awareness Month!

Please share this recipe to show how easy it is to make a delicious food that just happens to be Gluten Free.

Salud!

Learning to live Gluten Free is a challenge. Gathering with like minded people while exchanging ideas, life experiences and gluten free food is more interesting! So I created, Gluten Free Foodies, to support people with Celiac Disease, Gluten Intolerant and other Food Sensitive people by gathering at events and celebrating the foods that we can eat!
