Recipe by Bergy
READY IN: 1hr 20mins


  • 8
    medium potatoes, same size and shape, foil wrapped and 3/4 cooked
  • Chili Beef topping
  • 1
    tablespoon chili powder (or less depending how spicy you want it 1 Dash of chili sauce (if you like it hot)
  • 1
    teaspoon salt
  • 2
    (15 ounce) cans chili con carne with beans (I prefer Nalleys)
  • 2
    cups cheddar cheese, grated


  • Bake your potatoes until they are almost cooked.
  • About 35 min at 375°F - you can do this ahead of time.
  • ------Make the stuffing-------------.
  • In a skillet fry the ground beef, crumbling it as you cook.
  • Drain off all the fat.
  • Stir in the chili powder, salt & chili sauce and continue cooking.
  • When fully cooked, stir in the chili con carne.
  • You can reheat just before you are serving.
  • When you have the bonfire going, place the partially baked potatoes around the edge of the fire.
  • Each child is responsible for their own potato (watch them closely so they don't burn).
  • You can also have each potato on a metal hot dog stick so it is easier and safer for the children to turn the potatoes.
  • When cooked, top with the chili & cheese and enjoy.
