Chili Cheeze Baked Potato

A plain baked potato only has 160 calories with only 1% of calories from fat. They rate high in satiety, meaning they help fill you up, so you may eat less. Potatoes also contain proteinase inhibitors, which may suppress appetite. How you prepare a potato is important. So toss the sour cream and butter and top with a tasty 3-bean chili!

Not in the mood for chili and cheese? Try the baked potato with the Basic Cream Sauce, or guacamole, salsa, and chopped veggies.

Life and Health tip: Short on time? Poke holes in the potato and microwave on high for 6 minutes.
