  • Prick potatoes with fork; place in single layer on microwaveable plate. Microwave on HIGH 10 to 12 min. or until potatoes are tender. Cool 10 min.
  • Heat oven to 375°F. Cut potatoes lengthwise in half; scoop out centres, leaving 1/4-inch-thick shells. Refrigerate removed potato centres for another use. (See tip.)
  • Place potato shells, cut sides up, on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Spread salsa onto insides of shells; sprinkle evenly with 3 Tbsp. cilantro. Top with cheese.
  • Bake 12 to 14 min. or until cheese is melted.
  • Top with sour cream, avocados and tomatoes; sprinkle with remaining cilantro.

How to Use the Removed Potato Centres

Refrigerate potato centres up to 3 days. To make mashed potatoes, place potato centres in medium microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 3 to 4 min. or until heated through. Add 1/4 cup each milk and additional sour cream; mash until creamy.
