These potatoes are one of my personal favorites and are a good quick and easy weekday meal. Great served with sour cream.

Great recipe. I used 4 oz of green chilies instead of jalapeno peppers. When I make it again I will use a little more Worcestershire sauce. Read More

I did not really care for these potatoes. I think the reason was I like the taste of baked potatoes and I felt this recipe was trying to cover the taste of the potato... Read More

This recipe is FANTASTIC. Die-hard meat eaters just scarfed this recipe down. I added mushrooms in for a little added texture and melted the cheese on top by placing the skillet in the oven. But this recipe will be made again and again (and if you are a meat eater you could easily throw a little meat in there too). Read More

I made this (just for me) yesterday for lunch. I replaced the jalapeno's with canned chili peppers and used refried beans instead of the chili beans. This was a really tasty and satisfying treat. Thanks Jessie! Read More

Yummy fun & bean-ey way to fancy up a typical butter/cheese/baked potato. I just found the Worcestshire flavor to be a little odd. Otherwise the beans w/ sauteed veggies plus grated cheese and green onions perched atop a fluffy baked potato was very good and something that I'd fix again. Incidentally I scrubbed the potatoes rubbed them in EVOO sprinked them w/ sea salt and baked at 400 for 45-50 min. b/c we LOVE to eat our potato skins crispy w/ Texas Pete hot sauce! Read More

WOW! I think the bean topping could have been enough for 6 or 8 potatoes! BUT it was good! I omitted the jalapenos and when the potatoes were done and split I drizzled a little melted butter over them first followed by the bean mix then the cheese (which I then melted in the microwave for a few min) and then a dollop of sour cream. Very good potatoes and a good twist to the old basic baked spud! Thanks! Read More

I really enjoyed this. To make it low cholesterol we used light sour cream on top with veggie cheddar cheese. Yummy! Read More

Really good filling and easy. I didn't use jalapenos since I have a 2y/o but got chili that had red & green chiles in it. Next time I'd like to add some spices and see how it turns out. Read More

Really good. I used 6 potatoes since mine were sort of small and used a can of diced green chiles instead of jalepenos. I didn't have quite enough green pepper but with the extra green chiles it evened out fine. I used lactose-free cheddar/jack mix and regular Worcestershire. We had a little extra bean mix and my husband made it into a sandwich later. Read More

Quick and filling meal. We used 8 med-sized white potatoes. Not very spicy and could use more seasonings too. But it was an interesting change and I'd make this dish again. Read More
