My family and I enjoy dipping these yummy spud sin salsa and sour cream and even nacho cheese, yum! I know you will enjoy chowing down on these tasty little appetizers.

This has got to be one of the simplest recipes I have ever come across. Will you be making this tonight for dinner or serving these delicious Mexican potato skins as an appetizer at your next party?



4 large baking potatoes, baked – I precook them in the microwave

3/4 c. Kraft shredded cheddar cheese

1 c. chopped, peeled tomato

3/4 c. Kraft shredded Monterey jack cheese

2 T. Pearl black olives

1/2 c. salsa

1/2 c. chopped green onions

3/4 c. crushed tortilla chips – I love to use Fritos

Daisy sour cream

Optional: Bacon bits



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking sheet.

Cut each baked potato in half lengthwise and then cut the half in half so that you have 4 sections per potato. Scoop out potato leaving about a 1/4 inch layer of potato in shell.

Place potato skins on prepared cookie sheet.

Combine the two cheeses. Place half of cheese in prepared potato skins; top with tomato, onions, tortilla chips and remaining cheese.

Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Serve with sour cream, black olives, salsa, and guacamole.



Quick Tip: Serve these yummy Mexican potato skins with all of your favorite taco toppings like sour cream and salsa.
