Cajun Tasso with Herbed Potatoes

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 4 large russet potatoes diced into 1/2" pieces, about 6 cups
  • 1/4 cup light flavored olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic or garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 lb Teet's Smoked Pork Tasso cut into 1" matchsticks
  • 5-6 cups freshly shredded pepper jack cheese


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a silpat mat or grease it very well with oil. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet. Drizzle the oil over them and toss with your hands to coat. Combine the chives and all the spices in a small dish and stir to combine. Sprinkle over the potatoes and then toss with your hands to distribute the spices evenly. Spread the potatoes across the baking sheet. Roast for 25 minutes, until tender. The potatoes should be lightly browned and crisp on the edges.

While the potatoes are roasting, slice the tasso and place it in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook the tasso about 5 minutes, until it is lightly browned and cooked through. Remove the potatoes from the oven and reduce the temperature to 350 degrees. Add the potatoes to the skillet with the tasso.
Cover the potatoes and tasso with plenty of cheese. If your skillet is not ovenproof, layer the mixture into a casserole dish. Alternatively, you can scoop individual servings into oven-safe dishes and top with cheese. Bake until the cheese has melted, 5-10 minutes. Enjoy!
