My friends, this recipe is A-plus and two thumbs up! The skins came out absolutely perfect - better than a restaurant. I think they are so good because of the seasoned oil you brush on before baking, so don't skip that step. We doubled the recipe and served with store-bought Ranch dressing. I highly recommend this recipe! I posted a picture too.

My husband and I were recovering from colds and where tired of soup. Found this recipe, the only one I had all the ingredients for, and we loved it. I think the next time I make it I will add with the cheese some taco meat and make it a full meal. It was easy to do and looked beautiful. Would serve to company. Also, very good warmed up the next day for lunch.
