    Mexican hot pot




    I found this recipe on the internet -i just tried it-and i must say this is by far best thing i eat this week

    Sorry for a poor quality picture but i didn't have time to take decent shot as everyone was rushing me to hurry up



    Serves 4
    Ingredients

    500g lean minced beef
    1 large onion, very finely diced
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
    2 green peppers, diced
    1 x 500ml carton tomato passata
    1 x 400g tin red kidney beans
    200ml beef stock
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tsp freshly ground cumin
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1-2 tsp chilli powder (or more to taste)
    1 tbs Worcester sauce
    30g dark chocolate (70% cocoa), grated
    2-3 large maris piper potatoes sliced cm thick
    20g unsalted butter melted
    70g grated Mexicana cheese (something with bits of chilly peppers inside or anything spicy /but regular cheese is just as good )

    Method

    In an ovenproof casserole pan, brown the mince then set aside. In the same pan fry the onion, peppers and garlic for 4-5 mins.

    Add the cumin, cinnamon, chilli powder and oregano and cook for 1-2 mins, then return the beef to the pan along with the passata, beans, Worcester sauce and stock.

    Bring to a simmer then season with salt and pepper then stir through the grated chocolate.

    Meanwhile par boil the sliced potatoes in boiling salted water for 3-4 mins then drain.

    Layer on the potato in an overlapping fashion, place a lid on and cook in a preheated oven set at 180C / gas mark 4 for an hour.

    Take the lid off and brush with the melted butter, sprinkle on the cheese and return to the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are crisp and golden.
