One of our favorite fast meals is a loaded baked potato. They are great. We can use regular potatoes or sweet potatoes and add any leftovers or other toppings that we have on hand, it is an instant meal.
We really like to do this with leftover chili. I used leftovers from yesterday’s chili recipe to make this. It is so easy. Heat the chili. While the chili is heating, bake or microwave the potato of your choice. I used an Idaho baking potato and cooked it in the microwave because we were short on time.
After the potato is cooked, Open the potato and smash the insides with a fork, adding butter, salt, and pepper to taste. Add a little cheese and then pour the chili over the top. Add more cheese and top with sour cream or Greek yogurt.
This meal is so comforting and warm. I really like eating my chili this way.
