Spicy Beef Jacket Potatoes
- For the chilli
- 2 Tbsps Oil
- 1 onion (finely chopped)
- 2 tomatoes (chopped)
- 3 cups lean Ground beef
- 1 tsp Chili powder
- 1 tsp chopped oregano
- 1 small, red chili pepper (finely chopped)
- 2 cups canned, chopped tomatoes
- 2 ¼ cups canned red Kidney beans (drained)
- 2 Tbsps plain Dark chocolate (85% cocoa solids)
- salt (to taste)
For the baked potatoes: heat the oven to 200°C (180° fan) 400°F gas 6.
Prick the potatoes several times with a fork. Rub with oil and sprinkle with salt. Place on a baking tray and bake for 1- 1 1/2 hours, depending on the size of the potatoes, until tender.
For the chilli: heat the oil in a large heavy-based pan and add the onions and tomatoes. Cook over a medium heat until soft, then increase the heat and add the minced beef, stirring for a few minutes until browned. Reduce the heat and add the chilli powder and oregano.
Add the chopped chilli to the pan with the kidney beans and tomatoes. Stir well.
Stir in the chocolate. Season well with salt, cover the pan and cook gently for 45-60 minutes, until thick, stirring from time to time to avoid the mixture sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Split open the potatoes and spoon in the chilli.
