  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Scoop out the centers of the potato halves, leaving about ½-inch of potato in the skin to keep its shape. Place the skins on a greased baking sheet and place the scooped pieces into a bowl.

  4. Mash the potato in the bowl with milk, salt, pepper, and butter until smooth, or as smooth as you prefer. Stir in the green and red peppers, jalapeno, and garlic until evenly distributed.

  5. Mound the mixture into the potato skins. Sprinkle cheese and bacon bits over the top.

  6. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the cheese is starting to toast.

  7. Serve warm and enjoy.
