Easy Buffalo Potato Skins


Let me tell you, it is wonderful to be home! I think the perfect length of a trip is one that is just long enough for you to appreciate coming back to your own space (and your own country, your own town, and your own bed). I’m so glad to be back in my own kitchen as well, with easy access to all our usual foods. One of our favorite finger food dinners (that I need to make more often) is inspired by the only dish we ordered twice on our honeymoon. The buffalo potato skins at the local joint across from our resort were so good we made it a point to go back again on our last night just to order them.

It turns out, they’re just as great for summer entertaining (think graduation parties or family get-togethers) as they are for honeymoons because they’re as easy as they are delicious. You can do most of the work for these potato skins ahead of time, so right before the party, all you have to do is layer them up, pop them in the oven and serve a hot and delicious treat.

Total Time: 30 min. | Prep Time: 10 min. | Serves: 4 | Difficulty: Easy
What You’ll Need:
  • 6 russet potatoes, washed
  • 12 oz. cooked chicken, diced into cubes
  • 1 bag shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 container blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 cup buffalo sauce
  • Cilantro and sour cream for garnish

What You’ll Do:
  1. To prep the potatoes, cut the washed and cooked potatoes in half lengthwise. Use a spoon (this is easiest to do when they’re warm) to remove all but ¼ inch of the inside potato. In a bowl, combine diced chicken and buffalo sauce until the chicken is coated.
  2. Place potato skins on baking tray and layer with chicken, cheddar cheese and blue cheese. Bake at 350° F for 20 minutes, or until all the cheese has melted and the chicken is heated through.
  3. Garnish with sour cream and chopped cilantro. 

P.S. To make your prep even easier, use a rotisserie chicken and just shred the meat before mixing it with the buffalo sauce.

    Your recipes are divine, just like your style. Saw your instagram, love the purse! I am 17 weeks and still not showing, aargg! Even with my first baby, I didnt really show until the last month. I wanted to show so bad. It's like showing means I am pregnant. If people make comments about how big your tummy is, or you'll explode soon, just be glad you have a baby bump to show. Pregnancy is so beautiful, even those pregnant with triplets. You are wonderful and so beautiful.

    1. thanks friend! and thanks for the reminder – I am so grateful to have a growing and healthy baby and I'm proud of the body that's doing all of the work it just blows my mind some of the things people think are acceptable to say (but mostly, I'm just looking forward to having someone say something to me OTHER than a comment about my belly 🙂
