  • 6 slices bacon cooked and crumbled (reserve one for topping)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 ounces package dry Ranch salad dressing and seasoning mix
  • ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 4 jalapenos

For Jalapeno

  • Slice jalapenos in half and place on a baking sheet with the skin facing up.
  • Broil on high until skin blackens and blisters.
  • Remove from oven and place in bowl covered with a towel and allow to steam for 5-10 minutes to help skin loosen.
  • Peel skin off peppers and proceed to chop the remaining flesh.

Assemble

  • Cut each potato in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh, leaving enough to allow the potato to maintain a boat shape.

  • Using a potato masher or stand mixer, mix and mash until well combined.
  • Scoop the filling back into the potato boats and top with the remaining ½ cup of Cheddar cheese.
