Bake the potatoes either in the oven or microwave. It was almost 100* F today, so I opted to "bake" them in the microwave until soft. Nebalee gave me a good tip: after cooking in microwave for ten minutes, cover with a glass bowl and let sit for another ten minutes to let them steam.
Cut potatoes in half and scoop out the innards, leaving a "boat". Mix the innards with the rest of the ingredients and spoon into the boats. Stick back in a 350*F oven for fifteen minutes.
They turned out okay, a little dry, so I should have added more sour cream. Jay suggested next time, in addition to sour cream, I should use some queso dip. Sounds like a good plan to me.
I've also heard that chorizo is pretty good in the mixture. That sounds really good, too. When I started to think about it, there are a ton of things you could mix in the "stuffing" that would be really good. I'll definitely be trying these again.
