Twice-Baked New Potatoes

12 new potatoes
2 Tbsps. olive oil
1 1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp. finely minced fresh chives
1 clove garlic, pressed
Salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and toss them to coat. Roast until the potatoes are tender and the skin is slightly crisp, 20-25 minutes. Use a spoon or small scoop to remove the insides, leaving a small margin of potato intact. To the scooped potatoes, add the cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, chives, garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Mash until the mixture is totally smooth. Scoop the mixture into the potato shells, return to oven and bake until golden brown on top.
