NFL team + Potato Skins = yummy!

I love The Food Network. You guys know that about me!

I also really enjoy getting The Food Network magazine. It is full of tons of recipes and tips, and it comes to by mailbox monthly!!

In the Jan/Feb 2010 mag, they have an article about potato skins. Each NFL team has a tater skin recipe. I thought this was clever and so I decided to post the potato skin recipe for my favorite team. And what a great idea for a Super Bowl party appetizer!
The Dallas Cowboys!

It is called Texas Chili and the toppings are:
Chunky chili, grated longhorn cheddar, chopped onion, sour cream and hot sauce

How to Make Classic Potato Skins:

Pierce 4 large potatoes with a fork.

Bake directly on the oven rack at 350 degrees until tender, about 1 hour.

Let cool, then quarter lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving a 1/4-inch shell.

Brush both sides with melted butter and season with salt and pepper.

Bake, skin-side up, at 450 degrees until crisp, about 15 minutes.

Add your favorite team toppings.

(For cheesy skins, flip the baked shells over before topping, sprinkle with 1 cup grated cheddar cheese and bake an extra 5 minutes.)

I think my second favorite potato skins recipe just happens to be my second favorite NFL team....The California Fresh...San Diego Chargers. It has guacamole, sprouts and shredded Monterrey jack cheese. I am such a sucker when it comes to guacamole! I love it!

Yum! I made potato skins for New Years Eve, but mine were just the plain bacon and cheese kind:)
