More About This Recipe

  • The first time that I made it, it was a real revelation to use the fluffy potato gnocchi in place of a baked potato.

    I smothered it with everything I love to put on baked potatoes, cheese, chives, butter, sour cream, and chili.

    I was really craving this recipe last week. But my arm is in a sling for a month, so there was no chance I could do all the chopping needed to make a chili, let alone roll out dozens of little potato gnocchi!

    I decided to go the easy route with a can of chili and store-bought gnocchi and the recipe came out almost as good as the original! Try this easy Loaded Potato Gnocchi with Chili and you will be instantly hooked like I was a few years back!

    Get those gnocchi into the boiling water.

    The sauce is super simple -- just butter, garlic and sour cream! I never said this was the healthiest thing I have ever made.

    Mix the gnocchi right into the sauce.

    Creamy and delicious.

    Top with cheese, chili, and chives! Feel free to play with this recipe and use whatever toppings you love on potatoes. Bacon and steamed broccoli are another great combo.
