Cooking the potatoes in the microwave makes this dish a snap to prepare. If making ahead, top potatoes with cheese but wait to heat just before serving.
Pierce potatoes with a fork; arrange on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at HIGH 10 minutes or until done, rearranging potatoes after 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
Cut each potato in half lengthwise; scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Combine potato pulp, 1/4 cup cheese, and next 5 ingredients. Spoon potato mixture evenly into shells.
Top each potato half with 2 tablespoons cheese. Arrange stuffed potato halves on paper towels in microwave oven. Microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
