  • Give good old jacket potatoes a Mexican kick with this tasty chilli con carne filling and a colourful tomato salsa topping.


    • 4 large baking potatoes
    • 500g lean minced beef
    • 1 x 500g jar mild or medium chilli con carne sauce
    • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
    • 2 tomatoes, finely chopped
    • ¼ cucumber, finely chopped
    • 2 celery sticks, finely chopped
    • 2tbsp chopped fresh parsley
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


    • Preheat the oven to 200°C (gas mark 6). Put the potatoes on to the top shelf in the oven and bake for 1 hr, or until tender.

    • While the potatoes are cooking, heat a large frying pan and add the minced beef, a handful at a time, cooking it until seared and browned. Tip in the jar of chilli con carne sauce, stir well, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20-25 mins.

    • Meanwhile, make the salsa by mixing together the red onion, tomatoes, cucumber, celery and parsley. Season.

    • Split open the jacket potatoes and fill them with the chilli mixture. Spoon the salsa on top, then serve at once.
