Party Skins

These are super tasty. Crisp on the outside and cheesy on the inside. I love the flavor combination of chili powder and bacon - topped off with cool sour cream. I got this from my Better Homes and gardens cookbook - I just changed the name.

Party Skins
  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 2 tsp cooking oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • several drops of hot sauce
  • 2/3 cup crumbled bacon
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
Scrub potatoes and prick with a fork. Bake in oven at 425 degrees for 45 minutes. Cool.

Cut potatoes into 4 sliced wedges. Scoop out the inside (reserve for later and make Parmesan, garlic mashed potatoes). In a small bowl , combine oil, hot sauce and chili powder. Use a pastry or basting brush and brush oil onto wedges. Place them on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with bacon, tomatoes, onions and cheese. Bake for 10 minutes. Top with sour cream!
