Beef and Bean Topped Potatoes


  • 1 lb. ground beef cooked
  • 1/2 cup onion and bacon cooked
  • 1 garlic clove pressed or minced
  • 1 can kidney beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 can chili ready diced tomatoes
  • baking potatoes
  • shredded cheddar cheese


  • Place all the ingredients, except the potatoes and cheese in the slow cooker or heat them together on the stove.
  • Top baked potatoes and sprinkle with shredded cheese, if desired.


You can substitute ingredients for what you have. Try regular diced tomatoes with a can of green chilis. Use any kind of canned beans. Skip the bacon. Cook the onion with the ground beef. Add chili powder or taco seasoning or salsa. Anything goes!
