Baked Potatoes with Chili
To devise this recipe, I just experimented with ingredients I had on hand—and was delighted with the results! It can easily be doubled to serve more people. And except for the wonderful taste, the best part is that it's a "meal in a spud"...you don't even need a side dish!—Nadine Behrend, Everett, Washington
