Homemade Potato Skins

Colleen Sowa


This is an easy recipe that can easily be doubled or tripled. We have a big family... and they love this appetizer!

Just made a double batch with thick chili, onion, cheese and sour cream....!!!

This recipe and photo are ones from JAP... We have made this many times, and we make it a bit different every time... We like to play with our food!

Have fun and Play with your food!
