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 out of 10 on the comfort food 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 of my Beer Braised Beanless Chili 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 each and every one of them! And the best part? It’s all in a single bowl!
