Scrub potatoes thoroughly and rub skin with oil. Bake for 1 hour or until done. Allow potatoes to cool to touch. Cut in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4- to 1/8- inch shells. (Save pulp for another recipe). Cut skins in half crosswise and deep fry in hot oil for 32 minutes until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels. Place skins on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt, cheese, and bacon. Place under broiler until cheese melts. Serve with sour cream, jalapenos, and picante sauce.
