  • Directions

  • Bake your potatoes until they are almost cooked.
  • About 35 min at 375°F – you can do this ahead of time.
  • ——Make the stuffing————-.
  • In a skillet fry the ground beef, crumbling it as you cook.
  • Drain off all the fat.
  • Stir in the chili powder, salt & chili sauce and continue cooking.
  • When fully cooked, stir in the chili con carne.
  • You can reheat just before you are serving.
  • When you have the bonfire going, place the partially baked potatoes around the edge of the fire.
  • Each child is responsible for their own potato (watch them closely so they don’t burn).
  • You can also have each potato on a metal hot dog stick so it is easier and safer for the children to turn the potatoes.
  • When cooked, top with the chili & cheese and enjoy.
