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.

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2008

  • Yield: 10 servings (serving size: 1 stuffed shell)

Ingredients

  • 6 medium baking potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • 1 1/4 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 1/4 cups (5 ounces) shredded extrasharp cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chipotle chile, canned in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled (drained)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 450°.

2. 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.

3. 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.
