While still warm, halve potatoes lengthwise and scoop pulp into medium bowl, leaving potato shells unbroken. With fork, mash potatoes and butter or margarine coarsely, leaving small lumps. Add sausage, tomato, onion, chilies, taco seasoning and salt and pepper to taste. Heap mixture into potato shells, mounting in center. Sprinkle cheese evenly over top of potato shell.
