What You Will Need For A Chilli Con Carne Jacket Potato:

How To Prep And Cook:

  1. Heat up your oven:

    Heat your oven to between 180 degrees & 200 degrees.

  2. Begin baking your potatoes:

    Put the potatoes in the oven, and let them bake for 45 - 55 minutes.

  3. Prep your veggies:

    Slice the pepper, onion, mushrooms and jalapenos into small cubes/slices.

  4. Fry the minced beef:

    After about 30 minutes, fry your mince and high heat until it turns brown. Remember to drain the fatty oils from the pan once this is done. 

  5. Add your veggies:

    Add your pre-prepped veggies to the pan with the minced beef and allow them to fry. Fry until the onions turn golden brown.

  6. Add the chilli sauce:

    Empty the jar of chilli sauce into the frying pan. To ensure you get all the sauce, fill the empty jar 1/4 full with water, close the lid and shake. Then pour this into the pan. Turn the pan's heat down to medium heat and allow the sauce to heat up. 

  7. (Optional) Add the extra chilli flakes or powder to your preferred taste:

    Start with small sprinkles and stir into the chilli until it reaches your desired spice.

  8. Take the potatoes out of the oven:
