Chorizo Jalapeno Potato Puffs
I wanted to create an appetizer for the holidays that my potato loving friends would love! I wanted something that would be easy to eat with their fingers and something that I could make in the oven or in the air fryer.

My preferred way of cooking these is definitely the air fryer. While baking these in the oven will cook more of them at one time, the air fryer cuts the time down considerably and they also brown nicer. They will taste the same no matter what way you cook them, however, so if you only have an oven, then never fear. These will still be delicious!

I loved the little meaty bites of heat that came through with the chorizo and jalapeno peppers. The dipping sauce has chipotle powder as one of the ingredients.  This sour cream based sauce lends a “cool” bite that totally complimented the heat!
