Ingredients

  • 4 small russet potatoes about 8 oz. each
  • 2 tablespoons light cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons skim milk
  • 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese divided

For Serving:

  • sliced green onions
  • salsa

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • With a fork, pierce each potato in several places. Microwave until tender when pierced with a fork, about 12 minutes, turning halfway through.
  • When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out the flesh, leaving a ¼-inch border and transfer the flesh to a medium-sized bowl.
  • Add the cream cheese and skim milk to the bowl with the potato and mash with the back of a fork or a potato masher.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and coat the skillet with cooking spray. Add the ground turkey and cook, crumbling with a wooden spoon, until almost cooked through.
  • Add the garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper, and cook until the turkey is cooked through.
  • Stir the ground turkey, green onions and ¼ cup cheddar cheese into the potato mixture until combined.
  • Place the potato skins on a baking sheet and divide the turkey/potato mixture evenly between the skins. Divide the remaining ¼ cup cheddar cheese between the stuffed potatoes.
  • Bake the potatoes until the cheese is melted and the skins are slightly crisp, about 15 minutes.
  • Garnish with green onions and serve with salsa.
