Add a little zest to your baked potatoes
4 baking potatoes
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 cup milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter
1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
4 tablespoons bacon bits
1/4 cup sour cream
Prep 30 min. Cook 15 min. ready 45 min.
Cook potatoes in the microwave until tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 8 minutes. Allow potatoes to cool, then slice in half lengthwise.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Scoop out the centers of the potato halves, leaving about 1/4 inch of potato in the skin to keep its shape. Place skins on a greased baking sheet and place the potatoes you scooped out into a bowl. Mash the potato in the bowl with milk, salt, pepper and butter until smooth. Stir in the green and red peppers, jalapeno, garlic and sour cream until evenly distributed. Mound the mixture into the potato skins. Sprinkle cheese and bacon bits over the top.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until the cheese is starting to toast.
