Spicy Potato Skins (Men's Health)


Spicy Potato Skins Spicy Potato Skins
Number of Servings: 4


    4 Small russet potatoes
    extra virgin olive oil
    salt and pepper to taste
    1 cup of skim milk
    2 Tbsp butter
    1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (plus more for garnish)
    4 scallions, chopped (plus more for garnish)
    1/2 Tbsp minced chipotle pepper
    1/2 cup sour cream
    6 strips turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled
    Pickled Jalapeņos


1. Preheat the oven 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. Halve the potatoes lengthwise and, when they're 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 it from tearing).

4. Add milk, butter, cheese, and scallions and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Preheat the broiler.

6. 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.

7. Mix the chipotle pepper with the sour cream and place a dollop on top of each potato half. Finish each with a bit of crumbled bacon and jalapeņos.
