Texas Tater Skins

Score points with this potato skin recipe! In just 30 minutes, you will have the perfect tailgating finger food, complete with sour cream, cheese, and green onion, with Texas-size flavor.

A perfect vegetarian option – there is no meat, just beans, potatoes, cheese and sour cream, as well as your choice of topping!  These easy-to-make and budget-friendly tater skins are full of flavor, so you won’t miss the meat.  The best kind of beans to use for this recipe is a BBQ flavor or a chili-flavored canned bean. 

You can always make your own BBQ-flavored beans by simmering canned pinto beans in prepared BBQ sauce. 

This tater skin recipe is baked, not fried, so it’s healthier for you as well!  Simply melt the gooey cheese under the broiler to let all the flavors combine.

How to Make Texas Tater Skins

Pierce each potato a couple of times with a fork and microwave, following your microwave instructions for baked potatoes, until tender.

Let potatoes cool slightly then cut in half lengthwise and scoop out some of the centers of each half, leaving plenty of potato with the skin. Place the skins on a cookie sheet or jellyroll pan.

Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the beans down the center of each half. Top each half with shredded cheese blended with green onions. Broil about 6 inches from the heat until cheese is bubbling.

Add a dollop of sour cream to each skin if desired. Serve with Sriracha sauce (or similar hot sauce) if desired.
