  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 hot dogs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Chopped onion
  • Crushed corn chips, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Scrub potatoes; pierce several times with a fork. Bake until tender, 50-75 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 6-8 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Stir in water, ketchup and seasonings; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook hot dogs according to package directions.
  3. With a sharp knife, cut an "X" in each potato. Fluff pulp with a fork. If desired, season with additional salt and pepper.
  4. Place potatoes on a baking sheet. Place a hot dog on each potato. Spoon beef mixture over hot dogs; sprinkle with cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped onion and if desired, corn chips.
