Fried Potato Skins Ole

4 lg Baking potatoes
1 c Finely diced sweet red peppr
1/2 c Minced green onions
1 tb Margarine, melted
1 1/2 c Fresh corn cut from 3 ears
2 ts Chili powder
1/2 ts Salt
1 c Sour cream
1/4 c Minced fresh cilantro
Vegetable oil
2 c Shredded cheddar (8 oz)
Fresh cilantro sprigs (opt)


Scrub potatoes; prick each potato several times with a fork. Bake at 400 for 1 hour or until potatoes are done.

Saute red pepper and green onions in margarine in a large skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes or until tender. Stir in corn, chili powder, and salt; saute 3 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, and let cool. Stir in sour cream and minced cilantro. Set aside.

Allow potatoes to cool to touch. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out pulp, leaving about 1/8 inch thick shells. Cut each shell in half lengthwise. Reserve potato pulp for another use.

Pour oil to depth of 2 to 3 inces in a dutch oven. Fry shells in hot oil (375) for 1 to 2 minutes or until browned. Invert and drain on paper towels. Place shells, skin side down, on an ungreased baking sheet. Spoon corn mixture evenly into shells; sprinkle evenly with cheese. Broil 5 1/2 inces from heat (with electric oven door partially opened) 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Garnish with cilatro sprigs, if desired. Serve immediately. Yield: 16 appetizers.
