Who does not like potatoes stuffed with all the goodies, such as sour cream, bacon, cheese, chives, and tomatoes? This is similar to having a potato BLT without the lettuce. Rich in flavor and easy to assemble. Enjoy!

How to Make Easy Stuffed Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. Pierce and place potatoes on dark baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for approximately 35 minutes (turning over occassionally), or until tender when pierced with a fork. Half potatoes and place in a greased baking dish with cut side facing up. Using a fork, lightly smash the inside of each potato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour melted butter over potatoes.
  2. Spread sour cream on all potatoes. Then add shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, green onions, and tomatoes. Return to oven and bake for approximately 10 -15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  3. Serve with a dollop of guacamole salad on top. Note: You can purchase packaged guacamole in market or prepare your own.
  4. Quick guacamole salad: Mash 2 peeled and chopped avocadoes with a fork. Add chopped onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper (be generous with these spices for good flavor), and several tablespoons of Picante Sauce. Add a few drops of lemon juice to prevent discoloration of avocado.
