Chilli Baked Potato

1 large jacket potatoes 1 tbsp sunflower oil 1/2 red onion chopped 1 garlic cloves, crushed 1 sachet (30-39g), chilli con carne seasoning mix 125g beef mince 1 tbsp tomato purée 100g can chopped tomatoes 100g can black beans, drained 1 tbsp 50% less fat sour cream 30g light grated cheese

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork, then put on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 1 hr. While the potatoes are baking, heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and fry over a high heat for 5 mins until softened. Add the garlic and chilli sachet. Stir a few times to coat the onions in the spices, then tip the onion mixture into a large ovenproof dish. Put the pan back over high heat and add the beef mince, breaking it up with a spatula as you go.

Cook until starting to become crisp at the edges, then add to the dish with the onions. Add the bacon to the beef and stir to combine. Stir in the tomato purée and tomatoes, then put the dish in the oven with the potatoes and bake for 25-30 mins until bubbling and starting to thicken. Stir in the beans and season well. Return to the oven for 5 mins to warm through. Cut a cross in the top of each potato and squeeze the sides to open. Spoon in the baked chilli and top with soured cream, cheese and coriander if you like.
