Reader's Digest Potato Skin Nachos Recipe

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 F. Bake the potatoes in the oven for 1 hour. Remove, leaving the oven on and let cool until easy to handle.

Step 2

Halve the potatoes lengthwise and scoop out the pulp, leaving shells 1/8 of an inch thick. Half each potato shell lengthwise then half each piece crosswise.

Step 3

Arrange the potato skins flesh side up on an ungreased baking sheet. Sprinkle with the chili powder and salt. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes or until heated through.

Step 4

Meanwhile combine the taco sauce, cheese, peppers, garlic and parsley in a small bowl. Spoon the mixture onto the hot potato skins. With the oven rack set 4 inches from the heat, broil the skins for 1 to 2 minutes or until the cheese melts.
