Loaded Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins

I'm in Buffalo Chicken heaven right now. These potato skins are a buffalo chicken lovers dream! I'm also excited that they are diet friendly! Yes, you heard that right. A potato skin that is actually somewhat healthy. So, I was able to enjoy myself without the guilt. I can't wait to make these again and soon!
