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.

We enjoyed these as a great change of pace for stuffed potatoes. I used green salsa since I was serving this with an entree that had red salsa. I mixed some of the cheese into the potato mixture, then sprinkled the rest on top. I cooked this entire recipe in the microwave; "baking" the potatoes and then cooking the finished product for about 5 minutes.

My family declared these "the best potatoes ever." I started putting things together before re-reading the directions and mixed all of the stuff into the scooped out potatoes instead of putting it all on top, but we liked it that way. Really good mix of ingredients - Thanks for posting!

Great new way to dress up potatoes! I short-cutted by nuking the spuds rather than baking & omitted the black olives (personal preference). Used hot salsa so certainly didn't need more peppers! ;-) Thanks for sharing your recipe!

I knew I would love these potatoes when I tagged the recipe. Altho faithful to the recipe, I was short on time and pressed by DH, so I took prep shortcuts that changed the presentation. I used the ricotta/yogurt/lemon juice sub for sour cream & dried cilantro. In haste, I mixed all ingredients & half the cheese w/the potatoes and topped them w/the rest of the cheese. When cooked, I topped them again w/added salsa & put them in front of DH who was now poised at the table w/camera in hand. I loved them, but DH said I was too heavy-handed w/the salsa. I said he was too impatient. In the end, we laughed & happily agreed they are tasty & more healthy than our usual loaded version. Thx for giving us another good option. :-)
