  • Preheat the oven to 375°
  • For the potatoes:

Put them on a baking sheet and bake for an hour or until the potatoes are fully cooked. Remove from the oven and let cool.

  • For the cheese:
  • Add the skinned almonds, garlic, potato, salt, chipotle chili powder, nutritional yeast, annatto, lemon, and hot water to a high powered blender and blend until thick, smooth, and creamy. There shouldn’t be any solids in the texture.
  • In a medium bowl combine the vegetable filling and the cheese and stir until well combined. Stuff in the potato skins and bake for ten to fifteen minutes or until the top of the filling develops a slight crust.
  • Top with the jarred jalapenos and cilantro. (Optional)
