Chilli bean and potato bake
(at time of publication)
- 4 medium potatoes, scrubbed, cut in 1cm slices
- 1 teaspoon oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 420g can chilli beans in sauce
- 420g can baked beans
- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- ½ teaspoon sugar
- 90g edam cheese, grated
1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Place potato slices in a saucepan of cold water and bring to the boil. Ensure slices are not stuck to each other. Boil gently for 4-5 minutes. Potato slices should be beginning to cook but still hold their shape. Drain slices gently and set aside.
2 While potatoes are cooking, prepare chilli bean filling. In a large pan, heat oil and fry onion and garlic until soft. Add both cans of beans and chopped tomatoes. Mix well and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
3 Spoon a quarter of the bean mixture in the bottom of a 1.5-litre ovenproof dish. Arrange a third of potato slices in a layer over bean mixture. Continue to layer, alternating bean mixture with potato and finishing with a bean layer. Top with grated cheese.
4 Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove dish from oven and prick surface deeply all over with a fork. This allows heat and sauce to circulate through dish. Return to oven for remaining 15 minutes. Serve with crisp green salad when in season or steamed vegetables.
