  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Pierce potatoes deeply with a fork and bake for 45 minutes or until tender.
  3. Increase the heat of the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle cut them in half lengthwise and scoop out nearly all of the potato (reserve rest of potato for a later use of your choice). Salt and pepper the potato skins to taste. Sprinkle green onions, tomatoes, chilis and cheese into the potato skin. Arrange potato skins on a baking sheet.
  5. Bake 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted. You may want to cut the baked skins in half crosswise before serving for tidy eating. Serve with sour cream on the side, for people to scoop onto their potato skins if they'd like.

These were great. My family loved them. The only thing that I did different was I added real bacon bits. It was great. Thanks for the recipe.

Not the best potato skin recipe I've tried. Even though it's obviously not as healthy, to create an authentic crispy skin they really need to be deep fried and then put in the oven.

Not very crisp like 'normal' potato skins

This is really tasty. I used the left-over potato to make baked potato soup. Will serve this again!

I chose this recipe for superbowl sunday because I had a few guests that were vegeterian. I served it with sour cream and salsa and used shredded mexican cheese instead of just cheddar. Everyone seemed to really like them. I WILL make this recipe again.

Very tasty! I will use more of the diced chilies next time. Otherwise, they were fantastic!

My boyfriend & I loved this recipe! It was generally easy but a little time consuming. The skins came out really good and I would make it again anytime!

We weren't thrilled about the tomatoes, but these are definitely healthier than the way we normally make our potato skins with butter, bacon, etc.
