Picante Potato Skins

Recipe Directions

Preheat the oven to 400-degrees. Do not bake the potatoes in the microwave for this recipe, because the skins will become too soft. Prepare a cookie sheet with nonstick pan spray.

Wash the potatoes and poke them with a fork or the tip of a knife in several places. bake the potatoes one hour, or until tender; cool.

Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out the pulp, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells. (Reserve the pulp for another use.) Cut each shell in half lengthwise; place on a cookie sheet.

Combine the salsa and margarine; brush over the insides of shells. Bake until crisp, about 15 minutes.

Sprinkle the skins with cheese; return to the oven for five minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve warm.
