Tuna Taco Chili Stuffed Potatoes

Tuna Taco Chili Stuffed Potatoes

Potatoes have a lot of haters nowadays—but they’re LOADED with phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamin C, and potassium! Plus, they’re an amazingly budget-friendly ingredient. Combined with the canned veggies, beans, and tuna in this recipe, this meal is extra convenient and affordable: just $2 and change per serving! These stuffed potatoes make for a deliciously satisfying dinner, or an easy meal-preppable lunch! Just store the chili mixture separate from your baked potatoes.

Ingredients

Baked Potatoes
  • avocado oil
  • 4 potatoes
  • salt, to taste
  • Tuna Taco Chili
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 cup broth
  • 15 oz canned chickpeas drained & rinsed
  • 15 oz canned corn drained & rinsed
  • 14.5 oz canned diced tomatoes
  • 10-14 oz canned tuna in water (NOT drained)
  • 15 oz canned white kidney beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • taco seasoning (to taste)
  • Procedure

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Wash potatoes and pat dry with a towel. Prick each potato with a fork on all sides. Rub avocado oil over the surface of each potato and sprinkle with salt.
  • Transfer to a baking sheet lined with foil and bake 45 minutes–1 hour, until tender all the way through.
  • While potatoes bake, prepare your tuna taco chili. Add oil to a pot and cook onion until softened (2-3 minutes).
  • Add other chili ingredients, except for broth. Mix to combine.
  • Pour in broth, season to taste, and stir. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • When potatoes are baked, remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. To serve, cut lengthwise from end to end. Carefully use a towel to protect your hands and push each end of the potato in toward the center to make it pop open.
  • Pile in the tuna taco chili mixture, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy! I like to top mine with Greek yogurt or sour cream, and some parsley or chives for garnish!
