  1. Cook each potato in the microwave until tender enough to pierce with a fork, about 8 minutes. Allow potatoes to cool, then slice in half lengthwise.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Scoop out the centers of the potato halves, leaving about 1/2 inch of potato in the skin to keep its shape. Place skins on a greased baking sheet and place the scoopings into a bowl. Mash the potato in the bowl with milk, salt, pepper and butter until smooth, or as smooth as you prefer. Stir in the green and red peppers, jalapeno and garlic until evenly distributed. Mound the mixture into the potato skins. Sprinkle cheese and bacon bits over the top.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the cheese is starting to toast.

Help! Nobody told me what to do with the onion and sour cream! I mixed those 2 ingredients in with the rest, everything worked out. I used green onion for the onion and yellow peppers instead of...

I used this recipe for dinner and my usually very picky family really enjoyed it. There are just a few things they all like so I'll definitly be cooking it again! Thank you!!

These are great. I recommend this to anyone who likes twice baked potatoes like I do.

I didn't like the raw onion in this. It didn't get cooked enough for our tastes. I omitted the bell peppers, but I can only assume that those remain crunchy too. Otherwise, I liked these. I used...
