Twice Baked Jalapeño Potatoes

These are amazing! I accidentally discovered this with my Sister-n-law on a holiday last year. they were remodeling their house...what do you make when the stores are closed and the kitchen is empty? They always make jalapeño poppers and Italian food, so they had these following ingredients on hand and what a great food we discovered! You can also make up ahead of time, just freeze and wait to do the last step when you are ready to eat. Please enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash potatoes and poke holes in them on the top for venting.
  2. Microwave until a fork can be easily inserted into them.
  3. When removed, let cool until barely warm so it is more easy to scoop out the potato into your mixing bowl, saving your potato skins.
  4. Scoop out your potato and mix on all ingredients. (Your Jalapeno peppers should be de-seeded and diced.).
  5. Scoop back into your potato skins.
  6. Top with pre-sliced Swiss cheese.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees until cheese is slightly browned on top.

This made a great lunch! I used reduced fat and non fat versions of the dairy products and bacon bits and it was great - full of flavor. Thanks for posting!

Very tasty and easy potato recipe. The potato mixture was a bit thick for me so I added more sour cream and milk and used my electric mixer to really whip up the potatoes before adding them back into the shells. I also used shredded colby-jack cheese on top instead of the swiss and added some salt and pepper to the potato mixture. Very good recipe. Thanks for posting it. Adopted for PAC April 2008.

Great! I left out the bacon bits, and used shredded cheese on top. I froze them until ready to eat. Then put in a cold oven set at 400* F for about 30-40 minutes. Great quick, no fuss side!
