Baked Chalupas

Chalupas usually are fried, canoe-shaped shells filled like tacos. Here, baked potatoes form the chalupa base. For a delicious lunch or dinner, serve with Guacamole Nueva, Grilled Salsa, and warm corn tortillas.

4 large potatoes, scrubbed
1/4 cup nonfat milk
1/4 cup minced, fresh Mexican herbs, such as chives and cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
2/3 cup grated, reduced fat pepper cheese
1 cup vegetarian refried beans
1/2 cup black olives, coarsely chopped

  1. Bake potatoes at 400° for 1 hour, or until tender. Remove from oven, cut potatoes in half, and scoop out centers with a spoon or melon baller, leaving approximately 1/4 inch of flesh and skin. Place potato flesh in a bowl, along with milk, herbs, salt, pepper, and half of the cheese. Stir to mash lightly and mix well; set aside.
  2. Place potato shells in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet. Divide refried beans among shells, top with olives, and fill with potato-cheese mixture. Sprinkle remaining cheese over tops.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes, or until cheese melts and filling has heated through.

Makes 8 chalupas.
