“At the request (no, actually BEING ORDERED) by fellow zaar chefs in the chat room...LOL... I'm posting this recipe which is something I just whipped up lastnight for a sinful snack. Takes 5 minutes, and about 1-2 minutes to cook in microwave. Can also bake.”
4 Potato Skins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut pre-baked potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out potato leaving about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in skin.
  2. Lay them out on a baking sheet with scooped out sides facing up. (Or if microwaving, place on a plate)
  3. Sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon each of chili powder and garlic powder over each potato.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Crumble one slice of bacon inside each (But this is also delicious without the bacon!)and fill with about 1-2 tablespoons of black beans.
  6. Sort of press down so it doesn't all fall out.
  7. Top with shredded cheese.
  8. Bake at 475° until cheese has melted, OR microwave on high for about 1 minute (or until cheese melts).
  9. Serve with dollop of sour cream and salsa on top.
