3 other ways to make baked potatoes

- Smoked baked potatoes – the taste of these is amazing
- Best way to make baked potatoes in the oven – so the skins are crispy, insides are fluffy
Prepare the potatoes as usual, but you don’t even need to poke them!
Just wash as usual, dry, and wrap each one in regular aluminum foil. Fit as many as you can into your crockpot. I ended up using a larger slow cooker than the one you see above because I was making 5 instead of 3 this time.
Just put all the wrapped potatoes in the crock for about 8 hrs. on low, that is it. I try to lay them on the bottom so they are at the same level and location, if you have some that are slightly larger make sure those are the lowest in the pot.
- 5 ingredient crockpot chili is excellent, and we cook these together often….two crocks on the counter means a great dinner!
