Loaded Potato Skins

Beans, spinach, peppers, and cheese (obviously).

Loaded Potato Skins
3 Medium Russet potatoes
1 Poblano pepper
2 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 Red onion, minced
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 Jalapeno, minced (remove seeds for mild spice)
1 cup Baby spinach
1 cup Pinto beans, drained & rinsed
1 tsp Chili powder
1 tsp Ground cumin
1/4 cup Grated yellow cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Pico de gallo, to garnish
1/4 cup Chopped cilantro, to garnish
1/2 cup Greek yogurt, for serving
Hot sauce, for serving
2 tbsp Fresh lime juice
Kosher salt, to taste
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Prick the potatoes all over with a fork and place on a baking sheet and into the oven for about an hour, until tender. Remove from the oven and let cool until you can handle them.

Char the poblano pepper by carefully placing on the flame of a gas stove, or on a baking sheet underneath the broiler. Char on all sides until black, about 12 minutes total. Place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap to allow the pepper to steam. Once the peppers are cool, peel off the charred outer skin of the pepper. Chop the pepper, discarding the seeds and stem.

Turn up the oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the potatoes in half and scrape out most of the flesh, leaving a little on the bottom so the skins remain sturdy. Reserve the flesh for another use, like mashed potatoes!

Place the skins back into the oven for another 5 minutes just to get a little crispy. Remove and set aside.

Heat a large skillet with olive oil over medium heat and add the onion, garlic and jalapeno. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the spinach and allow to wilt, about 2 minutes. Then add the beans and spices, and cook until warmed through.

Fill the potato skins with the bean and spinach mixture. Top with cheese. Place back into the oven just to melt the cheese, about 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with cilantro, Greek yogurt, pico de gallo, hot sauce and a squeeze of lime.
