My brother, Paul, invented these double stuffed potatoes for a barbecue we had in Mexico. Mild green chiles, Mexi-corn, sour cream, and Pepper Jack cheese, baked until puffy and golden brown.

  • Pierce each potato several times and rub generously with oil. Bake until softened, about 45 to 55 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine sour cream, cheese, corn and chiles.

  • When the potatoes are cooked, cut a slit in the top of each one and squeeze or scoop out the flesh, leaving a 1/2 inch thick shell. Combine the potato flesh with the cheese mixture; mix well. Spoon the potato mixture back into the shells, and place them on a baking sheet.

  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden brown.

This is my second time making these potatoes. As written this recipe gets three stars from me as it is a little bland. These are the changes I made. After baking my potatoes and scooping out the pulp I mashed the pulp then added 4 TB. butter and the amount of sour cream called for. I added salt and pepper to my taste which really helped the flavor. I then added two cans of the drained corn and one can of the chilies. I did divide the filling and used cheddar in half of the filling for my kids and pepper jack for my husband and me in the other half. Then I baked as directed pulled them out topped with more cheese baked 5 more minutes and served. YUM!! I will keep on making this recipe with the changes stated. Oh I did have some filling leftover and may only use one can of the corn next time. Read More

Dominique this was an excellent recipe! I make stuffed potatoes all the time but this was certainly different and very delicious! I only used one can of corn one jar of chiles and added garlic and onion powders and a little cayenne. Thanks so much! Read More

Delicious! I only made 2 potatoes and they weren't really huge ones either. I used 1 can of the mexicorn and a whole can of the chilies. Very veggie but the potato flavor came through just wonderfully. I baked the potatoes in the microwave. They came out fine but I scraped the pulp out a little too close to the skins and my skins sort of lost their shape. I piled the mixture into them and rewrapped the skins around them. Not a beautiful presentation but tasty anyway. Don't understand these people who are afraid to use pepperjack cheese. It only has a little hint of a spicy pepper here and there scattered among the ordinary jack cheese flavor. I could have had it even a little spicer and I'm not a big hot stuff fan. In addition to the sour cream I think I'll make them again with butter too. I liked them a lot but hubby had no comment- not a good sign. Oh well maybe my presentation next time will appeal to him more. Maybe a little paprika sprinkled on top for color--even with the browning they still seemed a little pale and lifeless looking despite all the goodies awaiting inside every bite. Read More

These potatoes were really good! They made a great addition to our grilled chicken meal! Per other reviews I only used 1 can of corn only 1 can of chili peppers and added some S&P to taste. Turned out great! Would recommend this recipe to anyone looking for a change in their average baked potato routine! Read More

Even though I didn't have corn or enough sour cream these potatoes were great. I started them in the microwave to make the oven time shorter. I will try them next time the right way. Read More
