This super-quick, super-satisfying chilli tastes great with baked potato - the perfect winter warmer


  • 4 medium baking potatoes, pricked all over
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red chili, sliced
  • 300g/10½ oz lamb or beef mince
  • 300g jar chunky tomato-based pasta sauce
  • 400g can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4tbsp fromage frais
  • Handful coriander leaves, to serve

Any tomato-based sauce works well with this recipe - but look out for ones with a spicy kick.


  1. Cook the potatoes in the oven at 200°C (400°F, gas mark 6) for 20 mins. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then add the chili and mince.
  2. Stir-fry until the mince is beginning to brown, then pour in the tomato sauce and beans. Heat through for 5 mins.
  3. Split the baked potatoes and fill with the mince mixture. Spoon over the fromage frais and scatter over a few coriander leaves before serving.

This is so easy and quick to do, all my family enjoy it. As a change from a jacket potatoe i often do some rice instead
