Recipe by Clifford Boren

The time does not include the 1 1/2 hours to bake the potato, because you might want to nuke it instead. That's what I usually do.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bake taters at 350°F about 1 hour 15 minutes or until just softening.
  2. Don't overcook.
  3. You can do this with the microwave if you prefer.
  4. Slice off the tops and scoop out most of the flesh of the potato, leaving about 1/4 inch shell.
  5. Cook garlic powder and onion in oil until onion wilts.
  6. Add turkey and cook until brown and loose.
  7. Add tomato paste and cook until brown.
  8. Add the two tsp chili powder and soy mixture.

  11. Whip the scooped out potato with the single tsp chili powder, butter, and black pepper to taste.
  12. Spoon turkey and chili mixture into hollow potatoes and top with the mashed potatoes.
  13. Put the assembled boats in the 350°F oven to heat through.
