In a medium saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add onion; cook 2 minutes. Add seasoning mix and water. Bring to a boil, simmer 10 minutes or until almost dry. Add corn and beans; stir and reserve.
Cut baked potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out potato flesh and place in large bowl. Lightly mash and add sausage mix, ½ of the cheese and ½ of the green onion.
Spoon mixture evenly into potato shells, top with remaining cheese and bake in 350°F (180°C) oven for 15 minutes.
Sprinkle remaining green onion onto baked potatoes and serve immediately.
Chef’s Tip: To Bake a Potato: Rub potatoes with oil. Wrap in foil and bake at 400°F (200°C) for 45 minutes or until tender.
