Kale and Avocado Stuffed Potatoes
Ingredients
2 large russet potatoes
2 cups kale bite-size pieces, (remove tough ribs and stems)
1 Ripe avocado peeled, pitted and diced
1/2 cup pepper Jack cheese shredded
1/2 cup salsa verde
1/2 cup Lindsay Naturals Green Olives very coarsely chopped
1/2 cup Brad's Naturally Nacho Raw Leafy Kale coarsely crushed
Directions

We’ve made these meatless, but if you want extra protein, add a link or 2 of diced Aidells Chicken Chorizo.

Prep: 10 minutes, Cook: 20 minutes, Serves: 4

1. Place potatoes in a medium bowl; cover and microwave on HIGH for 12 to 15 minutes or until soft when gently squeezed. Place kale in a medium bowl and microwave for 1 minute to wilt.

2. Let potatoes cool slightly, then cut in half horizontally. Scoop insides into bowl, leaving a small shell of potato inside the skin. Mash potato with avocado, cheese and salsa. Stir in kale and olives and pile back into skins.

3. Microwave for 3 to 4 minutes more or until very hot, then sprinkle with kale chips.
