  • Green Jalapeno Pepper Sauce however many drops you like for Spicy
  • 1 cup Black Beans ~ Drained and Rinsed
  • 1 Tbsp .. of fresh chopped Cilantro
  • 3/4 Cup Mexican Blend Cheese or anything you love
  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped Roma Tomato’s
  • 1 tsp . Lemon or Lime Juice
  • Onions optional


  1. First wash your potato’s super good. I even use soap these days….umm yes I rinse super good Then pierce several holes into the potato’s so they don’t explode.
  2. While your Potatoes are cooking, mix together the Beans, Cilantro, Tomatoes, Lemon Juice and 1/2 cup cheese in a bowl
  3. Now add the Green Jalapeno Pepper Sauce to your taste. I added 5 drops and it was not too spicy at all.
  4. After Potatoes are cooked, let them cool for about 10 – 15 minutes
  5. Then cut your Potatoes to the size you would like your appetizers to be. Carefully cut out the inner potato to about 1/4 inch of the peel.
  6. Place Potato’s on a baking sheet and top with about a Tablespoon of the Black Bean Mixture. Then top with the remaining cheese.
  7. Bake in a 425 degree oven for about 15 minutes until the Cheese is nice and bubbly…or less if you want it more gooey.
  8. If you want you can sprinkle with more finely chopped Tomatoes and a tiny bit of Cilantro to pretty it up for serving.
