Servings 6 servings


  • 6 large baking potatoes
  • 1/4 cup Chef Shamy Garlic Butter melted
  • 2 Tbs sea salt
  • 1 pound ground beef I used 80/20 mix
  • 1 small yellow onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 15.5 ounces chili beans
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbs lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs yellow mustard
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp dark molasses
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp Spanish paprika
  • 1/4 cup Chef Shamy Garlic Butter not melted for topping after potatoes have cooked
  • 1/2 cup shredded colby jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onions chopped


  • Rip off 6 large sheets of tin foil. Wash the potatoes then set them aside.
  • In a microwaveable bowl melt the Chef Shamy Garlic butter. With a basting brush spread the butter on one side of each piece of tin foil. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Poke each potato with a fork to make holes for steam to escape as they cook. Put the baked potato right in the center of the tin foil then fold at the top then the sides.
  • Crank the heat on the grill to medium heat sthen place these on the grill and cook low and slow for 45 minutes-1 hour.
  • In the last 15 minutes of the potato cooking make the toppings. In a pan brown the beef, garlic and chopped onion until the meat is cooked all the way through. Drain off the extra fat from the pan.
  • Add the chili beans, beef broth, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, apple cider vinegar, molasses, chili powder, and paprika. Stir to combine and heat through.
  • Take the potoatoes off the grill and let set for a few minutes. Open the foil carefully since steam will escape. Cut the potato in half.
  • Fluff the potato then add some more Chef Shamy Garlic Butter. Top with the beef and beans. Sprinkle cheese and green onion. Return to the grill for 2-4 minutes to melt the cheese. Enjoy!
