We’re making use of that leftover chili tonight–baked potatoes with all the fixings.
How does one bake a potato?
I like to scrub mine up, stab with a fork, coat with a little olive oil, sprinkle with salt and place them on a cookie sheet. I bake them at 425 for an hour or so. I just keep checking on them at the end until they are just right. I don’t use aluminum foil and my potatoes turn out great! Sometimes I don’t rub the skins with oil and salt, either, and they are still just great. Really!! Baked potatoes are just baked potatoes. I love to eat the potato skins.
This is an inexpensive meal for us–a bag of potatoes $3, leftover chili (free), plus cheese or sour cream $1. That’s affordable! And tasty!
