crawfish stuffed potatoes


i saw this recipe and modified it to our tastes. it takes some time to cook but the actual steps involved are pretty simple

2 large baking potatoes
1 medium onion diced
1/2 bunch green onions,just the green part finely diced
1 green bell pepper diced
1 lb frozen crawfish tales thawed
1/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 Tbsp cajun seasoning
1/2 Tbsp hot sauce (i used franks red hot)
1 Tsp minced garlic
olive oil
1 stick butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

preheat oven to 400
poke a couple of holes in the potatoes and slice in 1/2 length wise
brush each half with olive oil,wrap in aluminum foil and bake 1-1/2 hour until very soft (you can also microwave them,just omit the foil)

when the potatoes are just about done melt the butter in a skillet. saute the onion,green onions and green pepper about 5 minutes until soft. stir in the garlic,cajun seasoning and hot sauce. saute 1 more minute. remove from the heat and stir in the crawfish tails and mix well

In a bowl scoop the potatoes out of shells leaving the shells intact. smash the potatoes so that any chunks are small
mix the potatoes with the crawfish mixture,making sure the potatoes are well mixed in. stir in the sour cream and cheese

spoon the potato mixture back into the shells piling high
bake on a parchment paper covered baking sheet 30-40 minutes until starting to brown and the cheese is melted

serves 4
