  • 6 small Wisconsin potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cup chorizo
  • 1 cup Cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup green onion sliced


  • Make a campfire in a pit as desired. Wrap potatoes in foil and bake in fire until tender about 30-40 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, unwrap and cut potatoes in half and scoop out a bit of the flesh to make space for filling.
  • In the meantime heat a large skillet over medium on your Coleman or other stove and add chorizo. Cook until slightly browned about 10 minutes, stirring often.
  • To assemble loaded potato skins evenly divide chorizo and load into each scooped potato. Top each with shredded cheese, place on a wire rack or baking sheet and heat over campfire until warmed through and cheese is melted about 15-20 minutes.
  • Top each with sour cream and garnish with green onions.
