These potatoes are "Awesome" I made these with a meat and vegetable,well let me tell you there was no need for the meat and vegetable!!If you are a lumber-jack,maybe you would need the extra food.I used large bakers,and had a whole potato left over.I just put a half one in the microwave and am eating it for lunch.So, these could be made a day ahead-say if you have company the next night.I did have to subsitute Gruyere for the cheese choices in the recipe.I didn't have the Pace Picante Sauce or fire-roasted tomato salsa.I used what I have on hand,Restaurant Recipe Original Chunky salsa.I will buy these two ingredients for this recipe.When I make these potatoes again,and use the bakers,I will serve with salad. MG,Thank you for sharing.

These were excellent - and a meal in themselves. The first time I omitted the bacon (my daughters are vegetarians) and they were delicious! I made them again last night -again minus bacon - and got another round of thumbs up! (not an easy task) Thanks ever so much for sharing!
