I found the green peppers overwhelming, both taste and texture. I had scooped out the centre for potato salad so it may have made a difference if I had left more potato on the skins.

Made these for this year's Super Bowl Party and called them "Pig Skins" (everything had a football related anme this year). It was the first time I made them, and not only did everyone at the party absolutely love them, but it has become a family favorite. Its rare that I find something that pleases me, the hubs and the kids equally. They are also pretty quick and easy to make! I highly reccomend this recipe!!
