Buffalo Potato Skins

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by happynana

This is from Woman's Day. We had these for dinner tonight and thought they were very good. Be sure to dip them in the dressing -- it makes the recipe in our opinion. Next time I would double the hot pepper sauce but then we really like spicy. The recipe easily halves for two.

Mmmm...these take a little work, but are delicious! My favorite part of the potato is the skin so I was pleased with this healthy way to take care of my buffalo wing AND potato cravings. I highly recommend buying the good bleu cheese dressing or making your own to make this even more amazing.
