How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Wash and dry the potatoes, then pierce each several times with a fork. Microwave (I prefer to oven-bake) on high for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until cooked through. Timing will vary by microwave.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium-high, combine the olive oil, garlic, onion and jalapenos. Saute until the onion just begins to get tender, about 5 minutes. Add the ground beef and saute until browned, about another 5 minutes.
  • Add the crushed tomatoes and refried beans, then mix well and reduce heat to low. Bring to a simmer, season with salt and pepper, then cover and reduce heat to just keep warm.
  • Carefully cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, then use a spoon to scoop out the insides and place them in a large bowl. Leave about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of potato all around the skin. Arrange the potato skins on a baking sheet. Set aside.
  • To the bowl of potatoes, add 1 cup of the cheddar cheese, the ricotta and milk. Mix well, then season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Fill the potato skins almost to overflowing with the meat and bean mixture. Carefully spoon a bit of the potato and cheese mixture over the meat. Sprinkle each with some of the remaining cheddar.
  • Bake until the cheese melts and the mashed potato topping just begins to brown, about 12 to 15 minutes.
