baked potatoes topped with chili

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!
