Baked Potato with Chili

Ok another quick food post. I know baked potatoes aren't perhaps the most exciting food but it is the last in a progression of food dishes we do. So normally we start by making spaghetti bolognaise and then that turns into chili and then we have a little bit of chili left normally and a great way to use it is to add it to a potato.


Potato (big ones)

Turn oven to 200+C. Puncture potato with a fork several times. Place in oven for at least 1hr. I never really know how long to put them in, but once the skin has gone a nice golden brown and the inside is mushy, you know they are ready. Heat up left over chili. Place chili over baked potato. Add cheese (butter and sour cream are also good additions). Eat.

Price 1/10 (cheap as chips!)
Difficulty 2/10 (bc the oven takes a long time so you have to plan ahead)
Tastiness 7/10

One last thing. There will be some of you who are tempted to put it into the microwave. No! and I refer you to this link

Growing up we would have "baked potato" nights do you remember? Not sure we ever added chili though but it does sound good. I loved having chili in a sour dough bread. Where you hallow out the inside- rub butter and garlic on it- then put in the chili- top it off with some cheddar cheese and put it in the oven to make the bread a little crusty. The POOF your own little bowl of chili that you don't even have to wash the bowl. HUM maybe this would be good during the holidays.
