SOUTHWEST TWICE BAKED POTATOES

June 26, 2014

I have a vivid memory as a young person of being over at a friend’s house where twice baked potatoes were being served for dinner. That flushed, nervous feeling came over me because I had never tried twice baked potatoes and feared I would not like them and would have to embarrass myself. But I did try them! And I liked them (for the most part).

That occasion has become a significant memory because once I went to college, I’ve started trying a lot more foods and liking things I wouldn’t have wanted to go anywhere near. And look at me now! An adult making my very own twice bakeds (southwest style!).

  • I love twice baked potatoes and all their starchy/cheesy goodness. I laughed when you talked about eating these at a friend’s house for the first time. I remember feeling the exact same way when I would eat dinner at other people’s houses. Often times I didn’t even try to taste the food if I didn’t think I’d like it. I just took a bite, a big gulp of water and swallowed it down. Pretty sure they knew what I was up to.
    Anyways….these look good!
