Devilled Potato Skins with a Peppered Chilli Dip

These crunchy spicy potato skins are great fun for a bonfire party. They’re easy to eat with your fingers and are delicious on their own, dipped in soured cream or served with a peppered chilli dip. The Peppered chilli dip (Serves 4) works very well with devilled potato skins and is excellent with grilled or barbecued food.
