Whole30® Chili Stuffed Potato Skins 

Ingredients:

Chili:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • ½ lb. mild Italian sausage
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 scoops Vital Proteins Beef Bone Broth Collagen
  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1.5 T chili powder
  • 1 T cumin
  • ½ t garlic powder
  • 1 t salt
  • ½ t black pepper
  • ⅛ - ¼ t cayenne (optional)

Potato Skins:

  • 6 medium russet potatoes
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 t sea salt

Optional Toppings:

  • Paleo sour cream
  • Sugar-free pickled onions
  • Cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced

Directions:

  1. Dice the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Heat the oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add in the ground beef and sausage. Cook it all together for 5-7 minutes, mixing and breaking the meat apart. 
  4. Add the tomatoes, seasonings, and Bone Broth Collagen. Bring the chili to a simmer and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 45-50 minutes. 
  5. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Wash and dry potatoes, then poke the skins a few times with a fork.
  6. Lay them on a baking sheet, then drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle a little sea salt on top. 
  7. Bake for 45-55 minutes until cooked through.
  8. Remove from the oven and wait until at least they’re cool enough to handle. Don’t turn the oven off.
  9. Cut each potato in half longways. Using a spoon, remove most of the insides and set it aside. 
  10. Spray or rub a little oil on the flesh side of each potato and return them to the oven for another 10 minutes until they’re super crispy.
  11. Spoon the chili into the potato skins, add toppings and enjoy!
