Chili Cheesy Baked Potatoes

Friday, March 15, 2013
I just love how versatile potatoes are. Top them with something different and it becomes a whole new recipe and side dish, right?

Well, I had so much leftover Guinness chili left, I thought instead of nachos, let's top a baked potato with chili and see what it's like!

All I can say is this baked potato is the wow factor!

Melted cheese, additional topping on the chili equals the perfect combination of flavors.

Don't take my word for it!

Try them yourself.

You don't have to use my chili recipe, make your favorite.

Don't get tired of those leftovers, repurpose them, what a great side dish!

My Delicious Guinness Chili Recipe:




You may remember that Guinness Chili recipe I made around St. Patrick's Day?

Well, if not you can get that recipe here.

That's what I used to top these delicious looking potatoes.

With just a few ingredients you can have a whole meal on top of a baked potato!

TIP:




  • I like to brush my potatoes with olive oil, bake until the outsides are crispy
  • Put cheese on top of the potato before and after topping with chili
  • These freezes well, so you can make many of them freeze on cookie sheets and pack into freezer containers for another time

Calling All Potato and Chili Lovers!



Repurposing leftovers is a favorite hobby of mine.


I really love to get creative with them since they can easily be boring if you have the same old thing every night.


Chili is one of those meals you can really do a lot of things with.

Besides adding it to potatoes, leftover chili is great on hotdogs, tortilla chips and a great filling for tacos.


This was a different way the family enjoyed and I hope you will too.


If you love potatoes and chili this will be your new favorite side dish!
