Chili Stuffed Baked Potatoes

The other day I realized I had a couple of russet potatoes that I needed to use, and ground beef.  I really did not want to just make baked potatoes and meatloaf so I tried to think of something different.  My boyfriend suggested chili... and that is when I thought of baked potatoes with chili filling.  These were SO good, they were filling, easy and really cheap to make.
