Spicy Stuffed Potato

Spicy Stuffed Potato

This is an excellent side dish that goes well with lunch as well as dinner or even by itself.They are easy to make too. Potatoes are baked, hollowed out, stuffed with some interesting filling and again baked with some grated cheese on top. Cheesy butter melting on top makes these potatoes downright  mouthwatering. Their flavourful filling goes nicely with any kind of chutney or dips. If you like potatoes, you will love this.
