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.

Servings 8 people


  • 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.


Bite size potatoes make this a really fun appetizer. Stick with potatoes that have sturdy skins and don't scoop out too much flesh so they stay together.

    1. I have a feeling we would have a kick ass superbowl party spread if we lived next to each other!

    1. Hi Moira!

      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!

    1. Hi Yani!

      You put the beans on, then the bacon, then the cheese and then bake them off!!

      Happy cooking 🙂

  1. 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?

    1. 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!

  2. 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.
