  • Total Time 50 MINS
Serves: 4



  • 15 oz can Ricos Condensed Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  • 4 large potatoes, scrubbed & dried
  • ¼ cup chives
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • Crumbled bacon


  • Preheat oven to 425 °F. Place potatoes in a dish and prick all over with a fork. Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a sheet pan. Brush potatoes with olive oil. Bake until tender, 10-15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp.
  • When potatoes are cool, cut in half lengthwise. Using a spoon, remove middle, leaving a ¼” thick shell. Add skins back to the sheet pan and brush with oil, garlic powder and salt mixture. Bake until golden and crisp, 4-5 minutes per side.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 375 °F. Fill the potatoes with Ricos Condensed Cheddar Cheese (mixed correctly). Bake 10 minutes.
  • To finish off your cheesy loaded potato skins, top with bacon, a spoonful of sour cream, and diced chives. Serve immediately.
