Crisp potato skins filled with a creamy dreamy jalapeno popper filing and baked until melted.

  • 6 medium potatoes scrubbed
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 ounce packages cream cheese room temperature
  • 4 oz sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese divided
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese divided
  • 4 oz diced jalapenos canned
  • 12 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Make sure the potatoes have been sufficiently scrubbed, poke holes into the potatoes with a fork and put on a cookie sheet to bake for 45-60 minutes (until skin is crispy). Cool completely.

  3. Combine cream cheese, garlic powder and sour cream with a hand mixer until fluffy. Stir in the jalapenos, half of the monterey jack and half of the pepper jack cheeses and half of the crumbled bacon.  Mix well.

  4. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise and, using a spoon, scoop out some of the flesh leaving a potato "boat".

  5. Brush skins with olive oil and bake 15 minutes or until crisp.

  6. Divide jalapeno mixture over the skins and top with remaining cheeses and bacon. 

  7. Bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until crisp.
