These Bacon jalapeño twice baked potatoes are pure heaven! Whether they’re baked, mashed, fried potatoes are always the ultimate comfort food.
They were the star at our last big family dinner, and I loved that I was able to make them the day before. Then just throw them in the oven to get hot and bubbly. They can be the star of the meal or a delicious side dish.
How to make Bacon Jalapeno Twice Baked Potatoes

- Rub olive oil over them and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake or microwave until tender.
