Mexican Fiesta Stuffed Potatoes

Winter is the perfect time to eat stuffed baked potatoes! Whether it's sweet potatoes or good ole' russet, a stuffed baked potato goes right to your soul on a cold night. I have tried many different stuffed potato flavor combos in the past, but I always come back to this recipe. 

It's juicy, spicy chicken with peppers over a fluffy baked potato and topped with all the fixings! If you start the chicken in the morning before work, and throw a few potatoes in the oven right when you get home, it's almost like someone else made dinner! 

Get creative with your toppings and have fun playing with the flavors!
