Poke holes in your potatoes with a fork and bake them for 40 minutes to an hour until cooked through. You can test if they are cooked through by poking your fork into the potatoes at the 40-minute mark if it goes in soft they are perfect!
Next, you will need to slice the potatoes in half and scoop the insides into a bowl. Be careful not to break the skin.
In a large mixing bowl stir in the remaining ingredients with the potato filling until combined thoroughly. Then scoop them back into the skins and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
