This easy chili baked potato recipe works for weeknights or family dinners for a crowd! This trick lets you cook the potatoes in half the time.




  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Make the chili: try our Ultimate Vegan ChiliVegetarian ChiliHealthy Chili or Instant Pot Chili. Or, you can make the chili in advance and refrigerate; then re-warm before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, wash the potatoes and slice them in half. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Place the potatoes on top and rub them with olive oil, just enough to coat. Sprinkle them with kosher salt.
  4. Turn the potatoes cut side down and prick the tops several times with fork.
  5. Bake until the potatoes are tender and lightly browned on the edges, about 25 to 35 minutes depending on the exact size of the potatoes. Prick them with a fork to assess doneness. Taste and add an additional sprinkle of salt if necessary.
  6. Mash the tops of the potatoes lightly with a fork. Serve immediately with the toppings of your choice (listed above).
