How To Make Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins:
There are a few steps to making these Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins but they are so easy. First bake 10 small to medium russett potatoes until soft, about an hour. Let cool until cool enough to handle and then cut them in half and scoop out most of the insides. Grease both sides of the potatoes with oil and then bake them for 10 minutes. Flip them over and bake 10 more minutes. They will be nice and crispy on both sides.
To make the filling, use a hand-held mixer to beat the cream cheese and buffalo sauce. Be sure the cream cheese is plenty soft first are it will be lumpy when you beat it.
Stir in the chicken, ranch seasoning, and cheese.
Stuff the shells with the filling and bake for about 10 minutes.
To serve, drizzle with blue cheese dressing and buffalo sauce and sprinkle with green onions.
These potato skins have so much spicy flavor and are sure to be a hit.
