Baby New Potatoes Filled With Herbed Sour Cream and Cheddar

1 bag petite baby red potatoes (about 20 potatoes)
2 tablespoons salt for cooking
1 pound finely shredded Cheddar cheese
1 bunch scallions or chives, finely chopped (we used about 1/2 cup)
1/2 small red onion, finely diced
16 ounces sour cream
Blackened seasoning, to taste
1 bunch fresh dill (we used about 1/4 cup)
Salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Diced tomatoes, for garnish (optional)
Fresh parsley, for garnish

Snip one end of a potato with a paring knife. With a melon baller, scoop out the outer end of the potato to form a bowl. Take the knife and level off the jagged end of the newly formed bowl. Repeat with the remaining potatoes. Place potatoes (bowls only) in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water and two tablespoons of salt. Cook over high heat until the water boils. Turn down to a simmer and cook for five more minutes, then drain potatoes and cool them in ice water for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain water and reserve the potato bowls for stuffing.

Stuffing: Combine the remaining ingredients together in a stainless steel bowl and toss lightly. Scoop stuffing into potatoes and garnish with diced tomatoes, chives, fresh dill or parsley.
