Today’s Menu: Buffalo Chili Loaded Spud and Baked Sourdough Bread


3 Bean Buffalo Chili Spud 008

A very cool, cloudy, and windy Fall day out. Had rain on and off and it barley hit 50 degrees. Mom went with her Church today over to a place in Indiana for lunch today. So I caught up on laundry, house cleaning, and taking care of Dad today. She needed the break! Tonight I prepared a Buffalo Chili Loaded Spud and baked Sourdough Bread.





For dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Chili Loaded Spud. It just sounded like a fantastic Comfort Food Meal. For the Chili I used the Crock Pot 3 Bean Buffalo Chili that I had in the freezer. I sat a container out in the fridge to thaw overnight. To make it, couldn’t be easier. I used a large Russet Potato, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, 3 Bean Buffalo Chili, fresh grated Dutch Gouda Cheese, and a few slices of Jalapeno Pepper. The recipe for the 3 Bean Buffalo Chili is at the end of the post.

I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Then, on the stove I heated up some of the Chili in a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat for about 12 minutes. Removed it from the heat and topped it with the grated Dutch Goda Cheese and Jalapeno Slices. Put it in the oven and let it until the Cheese was melted. It looks good enough to eat right now! As I put the Chili in the oven I microwaved my Potato for 7 minutes and 15 seconds, came out piping hot. I slit the Potato in half and seasoned it with the Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Potato was coming out of microwave I also removed the Chili from the oven. I then topped the Potato with Chili, Cheese, and Jalapeno mix. And dinner was ready! Everything just mixed together into one incredible meal. I really packed the Spud with Chili, more than enough for a meal. Plus the Dutch Gouda gave it added flavor and creaminess and the Jalapeno slices gave it just the right amount of heat. Jalapeno added to any dish makes it better! I also baked a small California Sourdough Mini Boule. This would be a good one to hollow out and put Chili in it, future meal. Well for dessert/snack later some Ritz Whole Grain Crackers topped with slices of Cracker Barrel 2% Sharp Cheddar and slices of Hormel Turkey Pepperoni.
