I love a dish that makes several meals! Yesterday’s crock pot kid-friendly turkey chili is served on top of a Baked Potato loaded with cheese and toppings for a quick and easy weeknight dinner. A few of my other favorites are Loaded Philly Cheesesteak Baked Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Twice Baked Potato, and Sloppy Joe Baked Sweet Potatoes.

Last night I asked my husband Tommy how he wanted his chili (yesterday’s ) and he told me on a baked potato. So I popped a few russet potatoes in the microwave (or make these oven Baked Potatoes) then topped it with shredded cheese, turkey chili and some chopped chives from my garden and dinner was ready in less than 10 minutes – and my husband was a very happy man.

Variations and Tips:

  • If you buy a bag of russet potatoes, the potatoes are much smaller than the ones they sell individually. They average about 5 to 6 oz each.
  • Serve this over a baked sweet potato or air fryer baked sweet potato for a savory sweet combination.

Are Potatoes good for you?

Just to clear up the confusion, white potatoes aren’t all that bad for you. Potatoes have gotten a bad rap as a white starchy food. But, when they’re not drowning in butter or deep fried as french fries, they are actually a healthy, low calorie, high fiber food and a good source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, copper, potassium and manganese. They also contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. So if you want to stick with a traditional baked potato, go ahead… enjoy!

  1. Is the sour cream included in the calorie count?

  2. This was Amazing! Did it with sweet potato halves because that’s what I had to use up but either way would have been great! Thank you!

  3. Hi ! I have your three bean chilli frozen and was going to use that instead of the kiendly chilli for this recipe. Do you think this would change the points at all?

  4. A simple and great idea for using up all those great fall chillis. Can't wait to use it.

  5. I love that this is stuffed with turkey chili!

  6. This excellent website is generally awesome plus considering that packed with standard tank top Dental Implants

  7. We had this for dinner tonight. It was a big hit. I was surprised, the greek yogurt tastes just like sour cream. Thanks again for a great recipe.
