If you have ever watched the show Psych then you may have heard of these.  Wife is having a "Psych Party" tomorrow so we tested them out today.  It is from episode 3-14 in case you want to check it out on Netflix. I found a recipe via a google search and I must say, they are very good; although they don't travel well(inside joke)...

Peal or not, I tried it both ways:

Deep fry for about 10 min depending on size of potato, you want it almost done:

Let cool. Cut top off and hollow out, stuff with cheese(preferably a four cheese blend, hence the Quatro Queso).  Replace top:

image
Coat in a beer batter, fry again (hence the Dos Fritos) for 1-2 minutes, coat again for extra crispiness (if desired) and fry for another minute or two till golden:

image
Serve with sour cream mixed with ancho chillie powder, crumbled bacon and cayenne pepper(optional but good).

These things are pretty tasty and very unhealthy so anyways...just thought I'd share:D

    More info on the beer batter please, and how does replacing the top work when you drop it in the batter? Seems it would fall off. Maybe I am missing something....

  • Twice deep fried cheese stuffed spuds, like twice bakers only with a lot more attitude. Thanks for sharing. 
    @Chubbs - not sure what the OP used for beer batter but simple is better. Equal parts beer and flour whisked together. For every cup of beer/flour add one tablespoon baking powder. Whisk and let sit covered for at least two hours at room temp. Fantastic.

    I liked the way the peeled tasted but it is a subtle difference. The top stayed on no problem, I pushed it back on there pretty good and I guess the batter helps keep it in place. For the batter I used 1 cup flour 1 and 1/2 cup beer, 1 tsp garlic powder and 1/2 tsp pepper. It was just a little thin so you might want to adjust it a little. Also I would add some seasoning to the potatoes after the first fry, inside with the cheese. Maybe a little more seasoning to the batter as well. Really mash the cheese in too, it shrinks up a bit.

    duck fat you say?  sounds different(to me at least). I have a bucket of lard, not sure what animal it came from though. where do you get duck fat?
