  • 4 medium rooster /russet potatoes
  • 100 ml warm water

  • Preheat Air Fryer to 200˚C / 400˚F. Scrub potatoes and lightly pierce with a fork several times.

  • After 30 minutes, spray the potato with oil spray or brush with oil and place back for 10 minutes or until soft when pierced with a fork.
  • Take potatoes out of the Air Fryer and cut skin with a knife,
  • With a spoon, remove the fluffy flesh keeping the skin intact. Place the flesh in a blow and crush to roughly mash the mixture. Add the chorizo, cheese and chives. Stir in a tablespoon of crème fraiche if desired too. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Place the mixture back in the potato skins and sprinkle with extra cheese.
  • Place the potatoes in the air fryer for 10 minutes at 200˚C .
