This is a spicy meal meant for singles or couples. It's delicious and a great comfort food! Even though it involves a baked potato, this is not a side dish - it's a full meal. Thanks to Bakers Brothers Deli for the inspiration! For me, this is way too much food, so I usually eat half of it for one meal and half later.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 large baked potato
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional) or 1 tablespoon margarine (optional)
  • 1 (15 ounce) canwolf brand chili with beans
  • 12 cup Fritos chili cheese corn chips (crushed into large pieces, this is done easiest while still in the bag)
  • 14 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 -2 tablespoon light sour cream
  • 1 -2 tablespoon pickled jalapeno pepper
  • Tabasco sauce

Directions

  1. In the microwave or oven, bake the large potato (leave the skin on before and after cooking).
  2. While baking the potato, heat the chili on the stove top or in the microwave.
  3. After cooking the potato until tender, chunk it with a fork removing any brown spots while adding in the butter.
  4. Sprinkle the potato with cheese and pour on some of the heated chili. If necessary, heat the smothered potato in the microwave for 30 seconds or so.
  5. Mix in the crushed Fritos and top with sour cream, jalapenos, and Tabasco sauce, all to taste.
  6. Mix well, eat well, and tell your vegetarian friends and cardiologist that you'll die happy.

This was a simple and tasty meal. Both my grandson and I enjoyed it a lot. Thanks for sharing. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.

We ate this tonight along with Starvin's Nachos. The combo made a good dinner. It was very filling. The only change I made was that I served it with Homemade Salsa instead of the Tabasco Sauce. The next time I will probably add some spicey ground meat to the chili beans since we really enjoy meat as well as the beans. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
