  • Four 6- to 8-oz. potatoes
  • Olive oil


  • 3 cups cooked frozen french fries
  • 1  1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 cups fresh or canned chili, warmed

Potatoes: Pierce four 6- to 8-oz. potatoes all over with a fork. Place on a baking sheet, rub with olive oil and season. Bake at 425° until tender when pierced with a fork, 50 to 60 minutes. Split the top of each potato, being careful not to cut all the way through. With a fork, fluff potatoes until flesh is airy; season.

Topping: In a large bowl, toss the fries and chili powder. Preheat the broiler. Top each fluffed and seasoned potato with 1/2 cup chili, 2 tbsp. cheese, 3/4 cup fries and another 2 tbsp. cheese. Broil until the cheese melts, about 2 minutes. Top each potato with 1 tbsp. scallions.
