Loaded Jalapeno Baked Potato Boats
Make as many as you want…. I normally just use two huge baking potatoes.
1 stick of real butter
salt, pepper, & garlic powder mixed
1 jalapeno (may not use all, spice to taste)
cheese ( I like the 3 cheese mix colby, cheddar, swiss)
2 to 3 slices of cooked crumbled bacon
Sour Cream for dipping
I put potatoes in microwave for a quick fix. Normally about 12 minutes depending on potatoe size, Just make sure they are soft. You can bake but will take so long.
Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out potato into mixing bowl.
Turn Potato Skins upside down on baking sheet.
Melt butter and brush onto skins
Sprinkle Salt, Pepper & Garlic Powder Mixture on butter wet skins
Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 10 mins (Some people like crispy skins, thats ok, just leave in longer. Keep a watch on them until you have reached your desired crispness)
While skins are baking, chop jalapeno and add to patato in bowl.
Also ad, a handful of cheese, a couple of sprinkles of the bacon (make sure to leave some for garnish) remaining melted butter, and salt, pepper to taste.
Whip the potatoes.
When skins are finished baking, flip over on baking sheet and fill skins with Whipped potatoes. Garnish with cheese and bacon. Put potatoes back into oven until cheese is melted.
