These were excellent! I love potato skins, so made these as stuffed, baked potatoes instead of boiling. The roasted poblanos add a nice smokey note. I didn't use the butter, and subbed 1/2 c. low fat sour cream for the cream. Best of all - the leftovers froze well. Just thawed and reheated in the toaster oven.

This smelled great while it was baking, but I got a little concerned after pureeing that we would have green potatoes which would have been a hard sell at this house! Fortunately, they didn't turn green! There was only a hint of chili flavor in these, probably because I used a jalapeno (that's what I had) instead of a poblano. Next time, I will definitely use the poblano. Thanks Elmotoo.
