4 large potatoes, just the insides
1.5 Cups grated cheese, I used cheddar
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1 - 2 serrano chiles, seeded and chopped
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds (optional. Again I left these out. I just wasn't in a sesame mood.)
Salt and pepper

Spice Paste:

3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh ginger (about 2 inches)
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 Teaspoon salt
1 1/2 Teaspoons ground coriander (Grinding your own would be best. I didn't though.)
1/2 Teaspoon cumin
2/3 Cups greek yogurt
5 Teaspoons vegetable oil
Juice of half a lemon
1/2 Cup sesame seeds (optional. I didn't include these.)


1) Sprinkle potatoes liberally with olive oil and kosher salt and bake them at 350 degrees for 60-75 minutes.

2) For spice paste, add everything but the yogurt, oil, lemon, and sesame seeds, to a food processor and pulse for a few seconds.

3) Add the yogurt, oil and lemon juice.

4) Prep all the stuffing ingredients and toss in a big bowl.

5) Let the potatoes cool for 5-10 minutes.

6) Take a spoon and carefully scoop out the centers of the potatoes. Leave a little bit of potato around the edges.

7) Take the fillings from the potatoes and mix it with all the stuffing ingredients.

8) Scoop the stuffing back into the potato skins!

9) Top each half with a liberal coating of the spice paste.

10) Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes at 350.

11) Let cool a few minutes and enjoy!
