Nacho-Style Twice Baked Potatoes



   As a member of Influencer, I joined in on the My Food and Family virtual vox box, and chose a recipe to make for my family and share it with you. I chose to make the Nacho-Style Twice Baked Potatoes, perfect for a Fall afternoon. To make these, I needed the following ingredients:

4 baking potatoes 
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup Taco Sauce
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips
1/2 cup Jalapeño Cream Cheese Spread


Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  • Wash the potatoes 
  • Prick them up with a fork.
  •  Bake in the oven at 400°F for 1 hour. 
  • After the hour is up, pull potatoes out and let them cool for a few. Change the oven temp to 350°F. 
  • Cut potatoes lengthwise in half; scoop out centers into medium bowl, leaving 1/8-inch-thick shells. 
  • Add cream cheese to potato flesh; beat with mixer until blended. 
  • Add milk; beat until potato mixture is light and fluffy. * I added in my own touch here. A little salsa, ranch, and seasoning (Cajun, Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder)
  • Spoon mashed potatoes into potato shells; place on baking sheet. Drizzle with taco sauce, top with cheese and crushed chips. I also sprinkled some red peppers and drizzled Japanese Kewpie Mayo across the top of ours.
  • Bake 20 to 25 min.



~ Enjoy!! ~


These were delicious and so easy to make! The crunched up Doritos on the top were the perfect addition to these baked potatoes. They added a nice texture and the taste was superb! I also added my own touch to a few things. I gave an extra kick to the potatoes by adding a little salsa, Avocado Goodness Ranch, and seasoning (Cajun, Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder) to the mix, as well as sprinkling on red peppers, and a drizzle of Japanese Kewpie Mayo. It was a perfect Fall meal!
