Chili & Cheddar Loaded Baked Potatoes

Chili & Cheddar Loaded Baked Potatoes by Alison's AllspiceThese chili & cheddar loaded baked potatoes are a total comfort food classic for me.  When ever I make chili, I always make a huge batch so there are plenty of leftovers for other meals.  This is my favorite chili recipe, and the recipe I used for the photos.  I also love white chili, has anyone ever tried white chili over a potato?  I am crazy enough I might just have to try it, and report back!

This slow-cooker is the one I recently got as a gift and have been loving it.  It’s big enough to do anything you can think of!  It will come in handy during the holidays when the oven’s to-do list gets longer than mine!

Variations to the Chili & Cheddar Loaded Baked Potatoes recipe:

  1. Use your favorite chili recipe, or in a pinch, get a can of chili to build these loaded tators!
  2. If you are particular about having crispy skins on your baked potatoes, you should stick to oven baking them, which will take longer than written in the recipe.
  3. If you love sweet potatoes, try them in place of russets.  I also love purple potatoes, for extra antioxidants!
