Who doesn't love potato skins? These are crisp with two cheeses and salsa. These easy to prepare appetizers are a real crowd pleaser and just five potatoes can serve 7 to 10 people.

5 medium-sized baking potatoes
1-8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
1-4 oz. can diced green chiles
1/2 cup Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup butter, melted
