Serves 4


  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Hatch Chiles, roasted, peeled, stemmed, seeded, and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • Melissa’s Hatch Chile Powder


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Pierce the skin of each potato a few times with a fork. Bake the potatoes 1 hour, or untik fork-tender. Let cool slightly.

Turn the oven down to 375°F.

Split the potatoes lengthwise. Scoop out the insides and transfer to a mixing bowl, reserving the skins. Add the cream cheese, chiles, butter, sour cream, salt, and pepper. Beat well with an electric mixer. Scoop the potato mixture into the reserved skins. Sprinkle with Hatch Chile powder and bake until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes.
