Grilled Potato Skins

I could make a meal out of these potato skins! Gimme an ice cold beer or glass of wine and I'm gooood. (In fact, I think I'll grill these up this weekend).

4 medium baking potatoes

1/4 cup picante sauce

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

2 tbsp. real bacon bits

1/2 cup chopped tomato

1/4 cup sliced green onions, green tops included


1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 tbsp. sour cream

1-1/2 tbsp. Ranch salad dressing

1 tbsp. real bacon bits

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1. Scrub potatoes; prick with a fork. Place 2 of the potatoes in the microwave oven. Micro-cook on 100% power (high) for 11 to 14 minutes, or until just tender, rearranging once after 7 minutes. Repeat with remaining potatoes. Cool enough to handle.

2. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving a 1/4-inch thick shell. Discard pulp, or save for another use. Spoon 1/2 tbsp. picante sauce into each potato shell. Sprinkle each with cheese and bacon.

3. Grill potato skins on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 10 to 12 minutes or till skins are crisp. Sprinkle with tomato and green onions. Top with sour cream mixture. Yield: 4 servings.
