After making a good pot of hearty spicy beef chili to serve over a chili cheese omelet a few weeks ago, I was looking for ways to make the leftovers into different meals. One night we had chili cheese dogs. Not being much of a bread person, I ate the first one in a hot dog bun and then had a second wienie straight on the plate with just the chili and toppings.

The next day, with leftover chili still to eat, I considered my options. A bowl of chili with tortilla chips? Another chili cheese dog? And then it hit me. Chili Cheese Dog Baked Potatoes! No buns, just lovely baked Russet potatoes with their toasted skins cut open and fluffy insides filled with all the good stuff a chili cheese dog would have. Genius, no?

I may never eat a chili dog in a bun again.

Chili Cheese Dog Baked Potatoes

Ingredients - for 2 chili cheese dog baked potatoes
2 large Russet potatoes
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 cup or 240ml chili of your choice - or make my hearty spicy beef chili
2 good quality wieners
4 oz or 113g sharp cheddar, grated

Optional toppings:
Chopped onions
Minced fresh jalapeƱos
Mustard

Method
Preheat your oven to 350°F or 180°C.

Scrub your potatoes clean and dry them thoroughly. Poke them several times with the tines of a fork. Rub the potatoes with the oil and place them on a baking pan. Or, if you have metal shish kabob skewers, you can put one through each potato and put them directly on the oven rack.

Bake the potatoes for 45-50 minutes or until they are cooked through.

Panfry or grill the wieners until they are golden on the outside and hot on the inside. Warm the chili as well.

Once the potatoes are done, cut them open lengthwise and use a towel or oven mitts to push them open from the ends, to fluff up the insides. Add a wiener to each potato.

Top each with half of the chili and then the cheese.  Garnish with additional ingredients, if desired.
