Bacon & Tomato Potato Skins

6 large baking potatoes
2 tsp. cooking oil
1 tsp. chili powder
dash bottled hot pepper sauce
2/3 cup Canadian style bacon - chopped
1 tomato - finely chopped
1 cup cheddar cheese - shredded
1/2 cup sour cream
2 T. green onion - thinly sliced

Preheat oven to 450.

Scrub potatoes; prick with a fork. Arrange on a microwave safe plate. Microwave uncovered on 100% power (high) for 17-22 min or until almost tender, rearranging once. Cool.

Quarter each potato lengthwise. Scoop out the inside of each potato half, leaving about a 1/4"thick shell (cover & chill the potato insides for another use)

Combine oil, chili powder & hot pepper sauce. With a pastry brush, brush the insides of the potato pieces with the oil mixture.

Place on a baking sheet. Sprinkle potato pieces with bacon & tomato.

Top with cheese. Bake for 10-12 min or until cheese melts & potato pieces are heated through.

Serve with sour cream & green onion.
