Stuffing a Twice-Baked Potato  (Hector Amezcua/Sacramento Bee/MCT) This week, we’re giving away a copy of “Dora & Diego Let’s Cook” – a kiddie cookbook. (Enter your name for that drawing here.) And we thought it would be fun to offer up a taste of Dora the Explorer cuisine.

Baked Potato Rescue Boats
2 large baking potatoes
1/4 cup low-fat milk
3-ounce package low-fat cream cheese, softened
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chopped cooked chicken
1/2 chopped, cooked broccoli
2/3 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub potatoes and pierce in 2 or 3 places with a knife. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until tender.

2. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut in half lengthwise and carefully scoop out the middle, leaving a 1/4 inch of potato on the skin. Mash the innards with the milk, cream cheese and salt, and scoop them back into the potato skins. Arrange the potatoes on a baking dish.

3. Toss the chicken and broccoli together,and divide between potatoes, lightly pressing them into the mashed potato tops. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 6-8 minutes, until the cheese melts and the potatoes are heated through. Serves 4.
