Made like this recipe states these potatoes areĀ perhaps a bit unwieldy for a church potluck, although would be great for a Sunday School party, or having the guys over to watch the game! You can make mashed potatoes and make the mix for the top, I have done this and its a huge success. IĀ have also made the mix and put it over french fries and potato wedges, still a big hit.

Ingredients:

4 medium potatoes582b4be1f0a59c46aad24b71c05d665b
1 1/2 lbs ground beef, turkey or deer
1 Tbls. chili powder
1 can (15 oz. ) hot chili beans
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup sliced green onions

Directions:

Pierce potatoes with fork. Microwave on high 11 to 13 minutes or until tender, rotating 1/4 turn after 6 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

Meanwhile in large skillet, brown beef over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes or until no longer pink. Drain grease. Stir in chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, beans and 1 cup cheese; cook and stir until heated through.

Cut a slit lengthwise in potatoes; fluff pulp with fork. Season potatoes with salt and pepper. Spoon equal amounts of beef mixture over each potato. Top with remaining cheese and green onions. Makes 4 servings.
