Ingredients

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 3 ounces Jarlsberg or Swiss cheese, shredded, divided
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 8 slices ripe olives
  • 4 small serrano peppers, stems removed

Directions

  • Scrub and pierce potatoes. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until tender.
  • When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving a thin shell. In a small bowl, mash the pulp. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese, milk, butter and salt. Spoon into potato shells. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Using the tomato halves, olive slices, serrano peppers and pepper strips, create a face on each potato half. Add corn chip hats.
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

    Okay, but I don't think I would make them again considering all the leftover ingredients I had. They did fit in well at my witch-themed dinner though.
