DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the barbecue to around 425°F.
  • While the barbecue is heating, clean the outside of the potatoes then brush with oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake on the warming rack of the barbecue, or by using indirect heat, for 60 minutes or until a skewer or fork meets no resistance when inserted into the flesh.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, prepare your toppings and keep cold until ready to serve. In a bowl, combine the chili, oregano, cumin, garlic, onion powder, and salt to taste.  
  • Cook the ground beef either using the stovetop or on a griddle on your barbecue. Once beginning to brown, season with the spice mixture. Drain and keep warm.  
  • Once cooked through, split the potatoes open. Top with some shredded cheese, allowing it to melt before topping the potatoes with the meat and more cheese. 
  • Serve your potacos with your favorite toppings like sour cream, salsa, and guacamole.
