Loaded Chilli Potatoes (Dream 3)

April 11, 2015

School Dinners

So I am in a school and I have been assigned to come up with a dish that uses all of the kids’ favourite ingredients but had to be healthy as there was a serious obesity epidemic.  The children were getting fatter in front of my eyes so I had to think of something fast.  Fast to make, and loaded with their favourite foods.  Loaded Chilli Potatoes1  It was perfect.  Like Nacho’s but freshly homemade and seriously reduced fat content.  I don’t know if I did enough but at the end of the dream I ordered 5000 potatoes.

This recipe was taken from ‘Good Housekeeping Magazine’ (2014)

This recipe serves 4.


4 large baking potatoes, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 onion (finely chopped), 1 garlic clove (peeled and crushed), 1/2 tbsp chilli powder, 400g beef mince, 2 x 400g chopped tomatoes, 1tbsp tomato puree, 1/2 tsp cocoa powder, Worcestershire sauce, large handful of coriander (chopped), Greek yoghurt to serve and mature grated cheese to serve.
