Sloppy Joes in Potato Jackets
Ban the bun and give Sloppy Joes a try in a baked potato!
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Scrub potatoes with vegetable brush under cold running water. Rub lightly with oil, if desired. Pierce each potato several times with a fork. Bake until tender when pierced with a fork, about 50 to 60 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are slightly softened, about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cumin. Cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add the beef and cook, stirring and breaking into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink and the meat starts to brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the ketchup, sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and the beef is cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Cut or pierce tops of the baked potatoes lengthwise and then make a short cut crosswise. Squeeze the ends and push toward center to open. Top each with one-fourth of the beef mixture.
