Potato skins with chipotle sour cream.

Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Potato Skins

4 small russet potatoes
1 cup fat free milk
1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
4 green onions, chopped
1/2 tbsp chipotle pepper
1/4 cup fat free sour cream
6 medium slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Recipe Directions for Spicy Potato Skins

  1. Preheat the over to 400 F.

  2. Rub the potatoes with a bit of olive oil and lightly salt the skins. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until tender.

  3. Cut the potatoes in half and, when cool enough to handle, carefully scoop out the warm flesh into a bowl (leave a thin layer of potato intact around the skin to help prevent tearing). Add the milk, cheese, and scallions and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Season with pepper.

  4. Preheat the broiler. Carefully scoop the mashed potatoes into the hollowed-out potato halves. Top with a bit of extra cheese and place under the broiler until the tops are brown and crispy, 3-5 minutes.

  5. Mix the chipotle with the sour cream and place a dollop on top of each cooked potato. Finish each with a bit of bacon and jalapenos (if using).
