Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Scrub the potatoes and dry well, then prick in several places with a fork. Bake directly on the oven shelf for 1-1½ hrs, until they feel soft when squeezed.

  • STEP 2

    After 30 mins, heat the oil in a pan and gently cook the carrot and celery for 10 mins until softened. Add the beans, tomatoes and paprika and cook gently for a further 5 mins until the tomatoes are softened and pulpy. Stir in 100ml water and the Worcestershire sauce, cook for a further 5 mins then cover and keep warm.

  • STEP 3

    Split open the potatoes and spoon in the beans. Scatter with chives and serve.

RECIPE TIPS
GET AHEAD

The beans are great for making ahead and reheating in the microwave – spoon onto granary toast for a super-quick supper. Kids will love these Cowboy beans – as they’re known in the US – with a handful of cheddar stirred through.
