Twice Baked Chili Cheese Potatoes
I have to admit I was a huge fan of chili cheese fries (and even chili cheese hotdogs!) before I switched to a whole food plant based diet and there has always been that nagging little voice in the back of my taste buds saying, “Wouldn’t it be nice just once more time?”. Well now we can all have twice baked chili cheese potatoes as much as we like because this recipe is whole food plant based, oil-free, vegan, and is mind bogglingly delicious. The crispy skin on the twice baked potato has that satisfying crunch and the rich chili and creamy cheese sauce take this recipe to the next level of goodness.

Lovely recipe and will be making for sure but nutritional yeast amount is missing in recipe!
Did you mean to add nutritional yeast to your cheese sauce??
Yes, I corrected that in the printed recipe =)
Do You have a nut free version of your cheese sauce recipe??
You can always try a mixture of rolled oats and white beans instead of the cashews
use cooked yukon Gold potatoes with oats to replace cashews when making a delicious cheese sauce.
Could I use rice wine vinegar instead of white wine vinegar in the cheese sauce?
I made these last night with lentil chili I had in the freezer. I don’t own an air-fryer, so used the toaster oven on 400° to bake the potatoes and then rebaked them for 15 minutes after they were stuffed. Delicious! Having them again tonight.
I made the chili last night, we had it on mashed potatoes and I used a different cheese recipe that didn’t require blending because we are waiting on a replacement Vitamix part. I doubled the chili recipe for our family of four and there was less than one cup remaining by the end of dinner. The flavor was great and the combination of the chili and potatoes was filling. It was delicious! Thank you!
I made this a couple weekends ago and we absolutely loved it.😋 My only regret was that I didn’t make more. Made it again last weekend and doubled the recipe for just me and my husband.
I look forward to trying this! Quick question: My husband abhors (and if there was a stronger word, I’d use it) balsamic vinegar – or any vinegar. He can smell even trace amounts in a recipe. Are there any good replacements for recipes? i.e. lemon juice?
(side note: I love Balsamic and any and all vinegar… somehow our marriage has worked despite this drastic difference… lol)
Lemon juice will work.
This looks yummy! But do you have a substitute for Nutritional Yeast, or could I leave it out without changing the consistency?
You can leave it out but you might have to lessen the liquid a bit.
