Weight Watchers Recipe: Crispy Chipotle Potato Skins

Ingredients 4 large potato(es), baking-variety, cooked, cooled and quartered lengthwise 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil 1 tsp chili powder, or chipotle chili powder 1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce 6 slice(s) cooked Canadian-style bacon, finely chopped 3/4 cup(s) shredded fat-free cheddar cheese 2 medium tomato(es), diced 3 medium scallion(s), finely chopped 3/4 cup(s) fat-free sour cream Instructions Preheat oven to 425°F. Scoop out flesh of potatoes, leaving a thin layer of potato flesh in potato. (Reserve remaining potato flesh for another use such as mashed potatoes.) In a small bowl, combine oil, chili powder and hot pepper sauce. Using a pastry brush, brush insides of potato wedges with oil mixture. Place potato wedges in a single layer on a large nonstick baking sheet; sprinkle with bacon and cheese. Bake until cheese melts and potatoes are heated through, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with tomatoes and scallions; serve with sour cream on the side. Yields 2 potato skins and about 1 1/2 tablespoons of sour cream per serving. Notes We used fat-free cheese and sour cream but you can use reduced-fat versions of these products if you prefer (could affect POINTS values). Make this recipe milder and sweeter by using fat-free mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar and pineapple tidbits instead of tomato.
