Comments on this Recipe

I did not notice the use of the scooped out potatoe. What do you do with it.

This looks yummy

I just have to say, it is such a small world! I clicked on this recipe because it looks so tasty and then realized that the author of this recipe, Mary Shivers, lives near my hometown of Ada, OK! :)

Will try it tonight. Looks yummy....Thanks for sharing.

Also wondered about the scooped out potato. Can always mash them. Probably try to include some with the avocado mixture.

I also thought I would add the potato to the overall mixture. Would make the mixture warm and satisfying.
