Rinse and scrub the potatoes. Pat them dry and wrap them in foil. Bake them at 400 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour, or until they are tender and can be easily cut with a table knife.
Let the baked potatoes cool for 5-10 minutes or until they are cool enough to handle. Slice them in half and scoop out a little bit of the center to form a bowl. Reserve the potato centers formashed potatoesorhash browns.
Spoon hot chili into the baked potato bowls and top with sour cream, grated cheese and other toppings of your choice. Serve them immediately.
TIP:To make the baked potatoes extra tasty, lightly brush them with vegetable oil once you have scooped out the centers. Place them on a pan, lightly sprinkle them with salt and pepper, and bake them at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes on each side.
Frozen Mamas: I love this idea, I made mine in the crock pot! I coated potatoes in olive oil sprinkled with salt and wrapped in foil. 4 hours on high and 8 hours on low! yummy. You have ingredients for baked potato bar or this fab recipe!
