4 large Baking Potatoes
2 Tablespoons of Butter – melted
Coarse ground Garlic Salt with Parsley
1 pound of Ground Sirloin1 medium Sweet Onion – chopped
1 large can of Tomato Sauce – 15 ounces
1 large can of Hunts Tomatoes Mild Chili – 15 ounces1/2 teaspoon of Chili Powder1 teaspoon of ground Cumin1/4 cup of Brown Sugar
1 can of Red Kidney Beans – drained and rinsed
1 package of Shredded Colby Jack Cheese – 16 ounce
Parsley – rinsed, dried and chopped
Diced Green Onions – Optional
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
Wash the Potatoes with a vegetable brush, and dry with paper towels. Lay the potatoes in the Air Fryer basket. Melt the Butter in the microwave in a small dish, and brush the outside of the Potatoes with the Butter. Sprinkle the Coarse ground Garlic Salt on the outside of the Potatoes, on both sides. Set the Air Fryer to 400 degrees, for 40 minutes, and cook the Potatoes.
Place the Ground Sirloin in a heavy bottom skillet, and cook until browned well and no pink is visible. Crumble the Sirloin into small pieces, and remove all fat from the Skillet. Sprinkle the cooked Sirloin with Garlic Salt, and add the Chopped Onion, and Saute until Onion is golden brown. Add the Tomato Sauce, Mild Chili Tomatoes, Chili Powder, Ground Cumin, and Brown Sugar, and stir well. Let cook for 10 minutes on Medium heat. Open the Kidney beans, and drain in a colander, rinsing with water until beans are well rinsed. Let drain, then add to skillet. Stir well, and let simmer on low heat.
Check the Potatoes in the Air Fryer and pierce with a sharp knife to make sure they’re cooked through to the center. If not done after the 40 minutes, cook for 5 minutes longer. When Potatoes are done, allow them to sit for 2 minutes. Cut Potatoes open with a sharp knife, slicing them down the center. Using a Fork, mash the inside of the Potato, with a little butter, and smash the mashed portion down into the Potato. Stir the Chili, and add a generous portion of Chili to the Potato.
Top with Shredded Cheese, and Cook in the Air Fryer for 1 minute. Remove Potatoes to dinner plates, top with additional Cheese, and Parsley. Serve, and Enjoy! You can also add sliced Green Onions to top if you prefer.
