These were good! I couldn't find any frozen corn with peppers, so I chopped up some fresh green bell pepper and onion. I think it probably would have been a little bland without the onion. I also added a little sprinkling of chopped spinach. I used olive oil with the veggies and heated them up on the stove. No butter was needed with the yogurt and cheese it was very moist and rich. Scooping the potato out and back into the skins was a little annoying, but definitely made for a better presentation than not having it in the skins (we don't eat the skins b/c of all the pesticides). Overall, a solid recipe.

This is probably one of my favorite vegetarian meals that I have found on this site. Tasty, easy, cheap, and filling!
