Line the potato skins up on the baking sheet.

Put the scooped out insides in a medium mixing bowl with the sour cream, Sriracha and half of the cheese.

Scoop the mashed potato filling into the potato skins, then garnish with the remaining cheddar cheese and cooked bacon.

Wow, what a lovely taste experience Teresa, these delicious baked potatoes were so full of flavor and had great textures too. We loved them, they were worth the extra effort. Made as written but garnished with lime crema and an additional drizzle of sriracha. Thanks so much for sharing.

We enjoyed these twice-baked potatoes. I used some smaller potatoes so I could have leftovers to heat up again for other meals. Have to admit that while we love heat and we also love sriracha, I reduced the amount suggested. Will definitely make these potatoes again.

Yummy! I baked and stuffed the potatoes early in the day and then baked them off for dinner. I loved the level spicy sriracha, but the other diner would have preferred a little less heat. The finished potatoes look nice on a plate too! Served with BBQ ribs and green beans. Did I say YUM?
