Oh WOW!! We thought these potato skins were wonderful. Not very healthy but sometimes you've gotta ditch the diet--right. Bacon, cheese and taco seasoning were great combos of flavor. Left the green onion off of the kid's because they haven't acquired a taste for them yet--we are still hopeful. We had these for dinner but I am going to make them again as an appetizer for our next party. Thanks Nurse Di.

Instead of bacon bits (although I imagine imitation ones might be interesting), I made these with Morningstar meatless crumbles (which I use for tacos). They make great taco meat with the taco seasoning. I also left out the onions (personal preference).
