  • 4 small russet potatoes about 8 ounces each
  • 2 tablespoons light cream cheese softened
  • 5 tablespoons skim milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups canned black beans rinsed and drained
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese divided

For Serving:

  • sliced green onions for serving
  • salsa for serving


  • 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 and skim milk to the bowl with the potato and mash with a potato masher.
  • Stir the cumin, salt, pepper, black beans, green onions and ½ cup cheddar cheese into the potato mixture.
  • Place the potato skins on a baking sheet and divide the 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.
