Bacon, ground beef, buttery Yukon Gold potatoes and fire roasted potatoes make the base of this hearty Stuffed Baked Potato Chili. Before being served, each bowl is then topped with cheddar cheese, even more bacon, sour cream and chives to create this one of a kind bowl of comfort food.
It seems like the last of our warm weather days are over and now it’s chilly mornings and autumn rain that fills our day. Although I love the longer days and warmer weather that allow us to be out and enjoying the sunshine, I also secretly love being able to change into my yoga pants and favorite sweatshirt after making my last trip to school for the day and sitting around the dinner table with a bowl full of something warm and comforting. And let me tell you, this Stuffed Baked Potato Chili gets a definite 10 on the comfort scale!
I’ve never been one to put chili on top of a baked potato but I know there are so many of you that are, including my husband. When we were just parents of two, I remember late dinners after he got home from the hospital and the girls were in bed catching up on favorite shows on the DVR while eating a dinner of baked potato sans chili for me and with multiple ladle-fuls for him. Definitely the inspiration for this recipe!
Think of all of your favorite baked potato toppings. Sour cream? Chives? Bacon? Cheese? Oh yeah, this chili has it all! And the best part? It’s all in a single bowl!

Kiss your days of preparing baked potatoes and chili separately good-bye!
Want to give this recipe a try without lifting a finger? I can make that happen? My friends at Door to Door Organics – Ohio will be serving my chili – how cool is that?! – at their Good Food Gathering next weekend, November 8th. I’m such an absolute fan of this service and the amazing people that are behind it and the fact that they’re throwing a party for their customers? Super awesome. This ‘Good Food Gathering’ is an opportunity for DTDO to engage with customers and show their appreciation with Good Food, activities and entertainment, as well as give those attending the opportunity to get to know some of the partners and local producers behind the boxes they receive on their doorstep.
