Southwestern Stuffed Potatoes

Just printed off the recipe tonight and had it for dinner. SOOO GOOD! I did my dinner a little different then the recipe {See bottom for my modifications}

What you need:
3 medium potatoes
2 tbsp margarine
tbsp fat free milk
1/2 cup Sour Cream, fat free
1/2 cup Chili Peppers, green, diced , canned (optional)
15 1/4
oz Corn, whole kernel, canned , drained
4 scallions , chopped
cup low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
pinch paprika (for garnish)

What you do:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Wash the potatoes well and dry thoroughly, and place the potatoes directly on the oven rack. Bake for approximately 1 hour, or until soft when squeezed.
Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F, and cut each baked potato in half lengthwise. Next scoop out the inside leaving a thin shell. In a mixer, mash the potato flesh with the margarine, skim milk, and sour cream, mixing well.
3 Stir in the green chilies, corn, green onions, and cheese, combining well, and spoon the mixture into the shells, and top with the paprika, and bake for about 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are heated, and serve.

{I left out the corn and chili peppers, not as many green onions on mine and added a little more cheese at the end on the top-ha, we are cheese lovers!!} I'm also putting this under healthy food because this is a carb safe meal for a diabetic.
