Ingredients

  • 6 large russet potatoes
  • 8 ounces fresh cremini mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2-pound lean ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 package chili seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons adobo peppers in chipotle sauce, puréed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Pierce potatoes several times with a fork and place on a baking tray. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until softened all the way through.

  2. While potatoes bake, place mushrooms in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped.
