Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and prick the potatoes all over with a fork. Use 1 tbsp of the oil to rub over the potatoes and place on a baking sheet in the oven for about 1 hr until cooked through.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, make the chilli. Put the remaining oil in a deep frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for about 10 mins until softened. Add the mince, breaking up with a wooden spoon and stirring until turning pale. Stir through the chipotle paste, cook for 1 min, then tip in the tomatoes, crumble over the stock cube and season well. Cover and simmer over a gentle heat with the lid on for about 40 mins, stirring occasionally.

  • STEP 3

    Remove the lid from the chilli and cook for 10 mins more. Once the potatoes are cooked, halve them and top with the chilli, a dollop of soured cream and a sprinkling of chives. Serve with mixed leaves, if you like.
