Southwest Potatoes

This is a recipe I adapted from a Pampered Chef Recipe

We love it.

2 large Baking potatoes

1 cup of Cheddar cheese

1 1/2 tsp. of Southwest seasoning

1 can of Black beans, drained

1 can of Whole kernel corn, drained

1/2 tsp. Cilantro leaves


Create flat bases on each potato by cutting off a small piece on opposite sides. Pierce each potato with a fork all the way in.

Place the potatoes in a covered baker. Microwave, covered, on High for 5 minutes.

Remove lid and turn the potatoes over. Microwave for an additional 5 minutes or until the potatoes are very soft when pierced with a fork.

Remove the baker and move the potatoes on a cutting board.

When the potatoes are cool, cut them in 1/2 lengthwise and use a scoop to scoop most of the insides into a large bowl. Add the beans, corn, seasoning and 1/2 of cheese if desired.

Pour out any juice in the baker.

Place the potato skins into the baker. Use a scoop to fill the potato skins, packing the filling down with the back of the spoon. Sprinkle cheese as desired.

Microwave, uncovered on High for 3 minutes.

Sprinkle cilantro over the top
