I used to live in a town that had a little restaurant that made all types of crazy baked potatoes. There were broccoli and cheese baked potatoes, barbecue baked potatoes, Sheppard’s pie baked potatoes, and even sweet Thai chicken baked potatoes. The options were really endless and I miss that place so much! There’s really nothing like a good baked potato and even with all the options my go-to for making a baked potato a meal will be a chili loaded baked potato!

Ingredients for these Hormel chili loaded baked potatoes

Chili Loaded Baked Potatoes

For this recipe you will need:

  • 1 can of chili (your choice- I had Hormel Naturals because that’s the brand we prefer at our house)
  • 1 can of beans (optional)
  • Two large potatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste

I love adding an additional can of beans (I usually use pinto beans or kidney beans) to bulk up this recipe. If you don’t want to add the extra beans skip it! You can also add extra cheese, cooked mushrooms, or chives if desired.

How to make this recipe

I prefer to add an additional can of kidney or pinto beans to canned chili to bulk things up but it’s up to you and your personal preferences. I like to combine the chili and beans on the stove top and begin to heat those while I microwave the potatoes or you can also do everything in the microwave if you want. Simply add the chili, sour cream and cheddar cheese or any other fixings on top of your potatoes and enjoy your easy weeknight meal!
