Potato skins -- which just happen to be loaded with fibre and nutrients -- make addictively crispy finger food. Add the leftover potato flesh to pot pies, mashed potatoes or crab cakes. Serve the skins with salsa on the side.

Using fork, prick each potato several times. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until tender, about 1-1/4 hours. Let cool slightly.

Cut potatoes lengthwise into quarters. Scrape out flesh, leaving 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick shell; reserve flesh for another use. Cut each piece crosswise diagonally into thirds. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

Arrange potato pieces, skin side down, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Whisk together oil, chili powder, garlic powder, pepper, onion powder and salt; brush over tops of potato pieces. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Roast in 425°F (220°C) oven until golden and crisp, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir together yogurt, half of the chives, the parsley and mustard. Spoon small dollop onto each potato skin; sprinkle with remaining chives. Serve remaining yogurt mixture with potato skins.
