Chili Cheese Potato Bites Ingredients


Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Add potatoes and boil until fork-tender. Remove from water and let cool.

Chili Cheese Potato Bites Step 1

While the potatoes are cooling, preheat the oven to 400 F.

After potatoes have cooled, cut each in half and then cut a small slice off of the bottom so the potato can sit upright without rolling over. Scoop out the pulp, leaving a thin layer of potato on the skin of each potato half, and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
