Turkey Chili-Stuffed Baked Potatoes

These Turkey Chili-Stuffed Baked Potatoes are simply steamed in the microwave, then topped with a homemade chili that's packed with turkey and beans. They’re big on flavor, without the guilt.


Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) Simple Truth Organic® Diced Tomatoes in Tomato Juice
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 pound Simple Truth® Natural Ground Turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 1 can (15 oz.) Simple Truth Organic® Tri-Bean Blend, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • Shredded Colby Jack or cheddar cheese, for topping
  • Simple Truth Organic® Plain Low-Fat Yogurt, for topping
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes or until the onions are soft. Add the ground turkey and cook an additional 4-5 minutes or until the turkey is cooked through and browned.
  • Add the chili powder, cumin, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Cook for an additional 1 minute, then add the diced tomatoes, beans, tomato sauce and brown sugar. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste the chili and season with salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Cook the potatoes in the microwave while the chili is simmering. Rinse each potato and pat dry, then prick each with a fork several times. Place the potatoes on a microwave-safe plate and cook on high for 5 minutes. Turn the potatoes over and cook for additional 5-7 minutes or until they're fork-tender.
  • Prepare your chili-stuffed baked potatoes when the chili is ready. Slice each potato down the middle, but not all the way through. Placing a hand on each end, gently push in on both ends to open the potato. Top with about 1 cup of the chili, then a dollop of plain yogurt and a sprinkle of shredded cheese, if desired.
  • Serve and enjoy!
