“Another variation for potato skin lovers! We recommend trying it as written before giving into the temptation to change it around...You wont be disappointed! I like serving this side dish with meatloaf and a tossed salad!”
16 potato skins

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pierce the potatoes; zap them in your microwave on high for 10-15 min turning every 5 min (time may vary, more or less, based on your microwave's wattage).
  2. Cool, then cut in half cross-wise and then cut each half, in half again in the other direction.
  3. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a ¼ inch shell; save the pulp to use another time in another recipe.
  4. Preheat the your oven to 500°F; Place the potatoes, skin side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  5. Brush the potato skins, inside and out with the melted butter; Bake skins until crisp and browned (approx. 12 min).
  6. Preheat your broiler; combine the salsa and the green onions and set aside.
  7. Sprinkle the potato skins with the cheeses and broil until bubbly, approximately 2 minute.
  8. Place the skins on a serving platter and spread the salsa mixture evenly amongst the skins.
  9. Serve immediately, perhaps with a dollop of sour cream on top?
