1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Prick the potato several times with a fork and bake until tender, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly, then cut the potatoes in half lengthwise.
2. Scoop the potato flesh out of the skins into a medium bowl, leaving about 1/4-inch thick shell. Add the butter, sour cream, chives, salt and pepper and mash until almost smooth.
3. Spoon the potato mixture back into the shells. Arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with more fresh chives and the cheese.
4. Bake at 400°F until the tops are beginning to brown and they are heated through, about 25 minutes. Serve warm.
