The filling of these crispy skins is decidedly South-of-the-border, with chiles, cheese and sweet Roma tomatoes.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 10 potatoes
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup chopped green onions
- 1 cup chopped tomatoes
- 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chiles
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Pierce potatoes deeply with a fork and bake for 45 minutes or until tender.
Increase the heat of the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
When the potatoes are cool enough to handle cut them in half lengthwise and scoop out nearly all of the potato (reserve rest of potato for a later use of your choice). Salt and pepper the potato skins to taste. Sprinkle green onions, tomatoes, chilis and cheese into the potato skin. Arrange potato skins on a baking sheet.
Bake 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted. You may want to cut the baked skins in half crosswise before serving for tidy eating. Serve with sour cream on the side, for people to scoop onto their potato skins if they'd like.
