Chilli Con Carne Stuffed Potatoes
Recipe by Siphokazi Mdlankomo

Serves: 4
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour 40 minutes


4 large potatoes, thoroughly washed
2 Tbsp oil for frying, plus extra
for rubbing
salt and pepper to taste
500 g lean beef mince
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp chilli flakes
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 x 410 g can diced tomatoes
½ cup beef stock
1 tsp sugar
1 x 410 g can red kidney beans, drained
1 cup grated cheese of your choice
fresh coriander, to garnish
sour cream, to serve


Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
Prick the potatoes with a fork, thoroughly rub them with oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the potatoes on a baking tray and bake for 45 minutes. Heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan and brown the mince. Add the onion and cook until soft.

Add the garlic and spices, and cook while stirring for 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, stock and sugar, and cook for 30 minutes. Add the beans and cook for another 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Once the potatoes are cooked, cut them in half. Scoop the flesh out of the halves and place it in a mixing bowl.

Mash, season and set aside. Spoon the mince mixture into the potato shells, top with the mash and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 10–15 minutes until the cheese melts and turns golden brown.

Garnish with chopped coriander and serve with sour cream.
