Take Two: Cheddar vs. Chili Baked Potato


A baked potato can be a filling lunch. But you can do better than topping it with butter and sour cream. Just a half-cup of either chili with beans or shredded cheddar cheese packs enough oomph to make a medium baked potato delicious. Each has its benefits―fiber from the chili beans (9.3g) and calcium from the cheese (207mg). And though the chili spud has half the fat of the cheese version, it also has half the protein.
