Well guys… this is it. We’re locked and loaded. Super Bowl Sunday is just days away and we’re ready to roll. We’ve got a menu to rival all menus and we’re only missing one thing…Nacho Loaded Potato Skins.
Nacho Loaded Potato Skins. I mean whaaaaaaat? What is happening. It’s basically the end all, be all to game day snack. Imagine a crispy potato skin stuffed with refried beans, bacon, topped with cheese, salsa, guacamole, and chives. Can you dig it? I mean, I ate all mine with sour cream on top too, because why not?
These are amazing. And you 100% have to serve them or bring them to your Super Bowl party on Sunday. People will be singing your praises all year long and finding any excuse to invite you over. People might even forget there is a football game on and just hang out around the table with these bites – or maybe that’s just me. Does it get any better than carbs, cheese, bacon and guacamole all rolled into one amazing potato skin? I think not.
Nacho Loaded Potato Skins
- 12 Dutch Yellow Baby Potatoes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
- 6 strips bacon
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 cup refried beans
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup Chipotle Guacamole
- 1 cup Chipotle salsa
- 1/2 cup chopped scallions
- Sour cream as needed
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Drizzle the whole potatoes with 1 tablespoon olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
- While the potatoes are baking, cook off 6 pieces of bacon until crispy and then set aside to cool. Once cooled, roughly chop the bacon.
- Remove the potatoes from the oven and let cool until they are cool enough to handle. Cut the potatoes in half, and scoop out a most of the inside of the potato, leaving about 1/4 inch remaining.
- Crank the oven up to 450 degrees F.
- Place the cut potatoes back onto the baking sheet, cut side up. Lightly drizzle the tops with the remaining olive oil and a sprinkle of garlic powder and red pepper flakes and place them back into the oven for about 5-10 more minutes. Flip them onto their other side and bake for another 10 minutes before removing them from the oven.
- Arrange the potatoes on the baking sheet, cut side up. Spoon equal amounts of refried beans into each potato, followed by equal parts bacon and shredded cheese. Place the potato skins back into the oven for 3-4 minutes until the cheese melts.
- Take the potatoes out of the oven and top them with salsa, guacamole, sour cream, scallions, chives or whatever else you'd like to top them with and serve immediately.
Oh my word. These look delicious!
Yep, this might be the perfect food.
Right? I mean can you go wrong with guacamole topped anything 🙂
I am in HARD CORE superbowl mode too!! It’s so fun!! Love these potato skins!!
I have a feeling we would have a kick ass superbowl party spread if we lived next to each other!
I don’t care much for football either, but I will be trying these to help me get through the game!!
like mother like daughter 🙂 xoxo
Um, these are awesome!!! Can this be my dinner? I don’t think I can wait until the Super Bowl.
Absolutely this can be dinner! or lunch! or breakfast 🙂
Those skins look so amazingly good! They would be perfect for a super bowl party!
Oh girl! We could put together one amazing Super Bowl Party. Love this!
heck yes we would!
pretty basically I’m in it for the commercials, half-time and the food and beer! I’m going to take these with me to my neighbor’s party…
yay for the commercials! I totally forgot about them – they are the BEST part!!
Oh, how I love this Gaby. I’m not sure this would make it out of my kitchen to serve to others.
hahahaha I hear ya!! I hoarded them to myself when I made them 🙂
Yum! of course the guac is the crowning glory
Yum! I am sucker for things like this 🙂
this is SINFUL but looks sooo good!! i want this in my life like…yesterday.
Aww yeah, These sound awesome!
oooo yum! Not sure why it never occurred to me before to use refried beans & guacamole on potato skins, but I can’t wait to try it!
I will take five to eat now and another five for dinner.
These are insane! Love these, and need to make them soon!
Gaby!!! These are so calling my name! Gimmie!
I love how loaded these potato skins are – they look SO good. Definitely worth sitting through four hours of football. 😉
Don’t you use the scooped potato in the baked filling ? Just checking what’s down with that.
No, I don’t use it in this recipe. I just saved it and sautéed it up with some garlic and onions for another meal!
Perfect potato skins Gaby!
Hi Gaby. So you put cheese on the skins first and then the bacon right?
You put the beans on, then the bacon, then the cheese and then bake them off!!
Happy cooking 🙂
Tell me about chipotle guac?? 🙂
I hear you about not being interested in the game. Super Bowl is really all about the food and commercials for me!
Any parts I can make ahead? Our house is going to be a zoo tomorrow. Just wondering if I could prep the spuds a day before?
Hi Cristin! You can totally prep the potatoes a day ahead of time and even load them up with the beans, bacon and cheese and then cover them and refrigerate them overnight and then just pop them into the oven the day of the game!
Drool. Love. Doing this ABSOLUTELY!!!!
Game day potato skins for the win!
My two favorite apps in one! These little cuties look all kinds of delicious!!
These look super amazing! BUT, any idea what you would call a serving size and possibly what the carbs might be? I’m diabetic and my honey just found out that he is. He is a super finicky water. He would love these. I’m just really concerned with carbs as he is not on any type of medications yet. I’m on insulin so I have a little extra stretch.
not sure on the carbs – but it serves 8!
Oooooh….these have got to be the best skins EVER! So much more fun than actually watching the game!!!
My mouth is watering
Going to start some recipes tomorrow
