      I made these to serve with a green salad for lunch, but they would be good with almost anything. I microwaved the potatoes until they were soft enough to scoop out & then baked them for the final cooking time. The salsa flavor added a nice change to twice baked potatoes. Ole!

      I microwaved the potatoes 10 minutes. I used mild salso because of my son. I used fresh chives and omitted the jalapeno pepper. It was great. Thanks Brenda :) Made for the Saucy Senorita of ZWT5

      I loved these! I did microwave the potato, and I used a Mexican 4-cheese blend (montery jack, asadero, cheddar, queso quesadilla), and a medium salsa. I was very pleasantly surprised how good the salsa was in this potato! Thanks Brenda for a great keeper. I can't wait to make this again. Made for ZWT5 2009.
