  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons black pepper, divided
  • 10 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1 pound ground pork

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Pierce potatoes with a fork; wrap each in foil. Bake at 400° for 1 hour.

Step 3

Combine vinegar, 2 tablespoons oil, paprika, cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and garlic in a bowl. Combine turkey and pork in a bowl, mixing well with hands. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey mixture to pan; cook 7 minutes or until done, stirring to crumble. Drain any excess liquid from meat mixture in pan; return to medium-high heat. Stir in vinegar mixture; cook 2 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Place chorizo in a bowl. Reserve 3 2/3 cups chorizo for Loaded Chorizo Nachos and Saucy Chorizo and Egg Skillet. Wipe pan clean with a paper towel.

Step 4

Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in pan over medium-high heat; swirl to coat. Add kale; cover and cook 4 minutes. Stir in 1 1/3 cups chorizo, 1/4 teaspoon salt, raisins, and 1 1/2 teaspoons juice. Cut a lengthwise slit in each potato; gently squeeze at both ends to open. Spoon about 3/4 cup kale mixture onto each potato; top each with 2 tablespoons cheese.
