Our absolute favorite fast meal!! I purposely "forget" to take something out of the freezer for dinner some nights so that we can have these!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients except potatoes and cheese in a pan in which you first put about 2 tblsp of olive oil.
  2. Simmer for 10 or 15 minutes, until totally blended and onion cooks a bit.
  3. Place potatoes, individually wrapped in paper towels, in microwave and nuke until mushy (soft when you squeeze the paper towels).
  4. Remove and place one potato on each plate, slit and mash a bit.
  5. Spoon hot chili mix over each, topping each with grated cheese.
  6. You can add a spoonful of sour cream and some guacomole to make these really special and good, or be creative with your own ideas!

I often stuff potatoes with chickpeas flavored with allspice but canned vegetarian chili is a fantastic idea! These are great with tomato sauce, served over rice.

Wow, I was a bit skeptical, but I followed the recipe to the letter, and this was a good filling quick meal. As well as economical. I look forward to doing it again and maybe adding some more ingredients to the chili.
