Baked potatoes with black beans, tuna and sweetcorn (3 colours)
We had some black beans left over after making some burritos so I decided to try and replicate something I saw in the supermarket.
Jacket potatoes - 2 large
Olive oil - 1 tbsp
Red chilli pepper - 1, deseeded and finely chopped
Red pepper - 1, chopped
Tomato - 1 large, chopped
Cooked (or canned) black beans - 110 g
Sweetcorn - 198 g can, drained
Tuna - 185 g can in sunflower oil, drained
Sweet chilli sauce - 1 tsp
1) Cook the jacket potatoes in the oven. Half an hour before they are due begin making the filling... heat the oil in a saucepan and add the pepper and chilli pepper. Cook on low for 15 minutes until softened.
2) Add the tomato, black beans and sweetcorn to the pan. Stir well and cook for a further 10 minutes.
3) Add the tuna to the pan and break it up with a spoon. Add the chilli sauce and stir well.
4) Halve the jacket potatoes and spoon on the filling, topping with cheese if desired. Serves 2.
