2 tablespoons finely chopped chipotle chile, canned in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon salt
4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled (drained)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°.
Pierce potatoes with a fork. Bake potatoes at 450° for 50 minutes or until done; cool slightly. Cut each potato in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Combine potato pulp, milk, 3/4 cup cheese and remaining ingredients in a large bowl.
Spoon potato mixture evenly into 10 shells; discarding remaining 2 shells. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese evenly over potatoes. Bake at 450° for 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
Made half-recipe. Easy to prep in advance. Followed ingredient list except used reduced-fat cheddar. Made just a couple changes: used a ricer on the potato and stuffed all 6 skins rather than throwing any away. Had them ready & waiting to pop in the oven to reheat/melt topping. Served with CL's chipotle meat loaf and crisp-steamed carrots & broccoli. Hearty winter supper.
Great tasting recipe. Didn't require any additional salt or butter/sour cream which was great. I used a hand potato masher to get the proper consistency. Make sure you use a small spoon when removing the pulp from the shells.
This recipe is fantastic! I cut the recipe down to two potatoes and added more chipotle for extra smokey-spicy goodness. I made these to go with a London broil that I let sit in the whiskey marinade from this issue for about 9 hours and steamed baby carrots in a light garlic honey glaze. I have already raved about these to friends and will make them again soon!
