It’s always fun to take a favorite recipe and revamp it a bit. Being a girl who grew up in the great potato state of Idaho, potatoes are something that I prepare for my family often. Since there seems to be a million ways to prepare potatoes, I thought it would be fun to add two new ingredients, VELVEETA® and Ro*Tel® The recipe is twice baked potatoes. If you haven’t ever had or made twice baked potatoes, you are seriously missing out! The idea is to bake a potato, then scoop the inside out. You add all sorts of yummy things to the potatoes, mash them, and then put them back in the oven for about 20 minutes. What results is something most heavenly. Because I like to make my recipes with less calories, I chose to use the 2% VELVEETA®. It packs all of the flavor with less fat.
