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.
Bacon-Chipotle Twice-Baked Potatoes
If you don't care for the spicy chipotle chiles, omit them—these simple potatoes are good either way. Remember this side dish next summer; it is quite good with barbecue.
Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed shell)
