Do you ever have leftover meat from the night before and wonder what to do with it?  How about turning it into a whole new meal?  These microwaved potatoes are topped with leftover meat and tasty chipotle sauce.  It’s a quick, delicious easy weeknight dinner that’s sure to please the entire family.


  • 4 large potatoes, washed
  • Meat of your choosing (Beef, Chicken, or Pork) cut up or shredded into bite size chunks *
  • ½ red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Chipotle Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce**
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. lime juice
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Wrap each potato individually in cling wrap, and poke both sides, several times with a fork.  Place in microwave and cook on high heat for about 10 min., or until fork tender.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, to a blender add chipotle peppers, mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, and garlic powder.  Blend until smooth.  Set aside
  3. Remove potato to plate and slice down the middle.  Fluff the inside of the potato with a fork then top with meat, cheese, and onion.  Drizzle with chipotle sauce and serve right away.


*This is a great recipe to use up the leftover meat from the night before, or from a rotisserie chicken.  I used leftover pork I used to make tamales. 

**To cut the spice level, use one chipotle pepper instead of two.
