This dish is an ode to my colleague to whom I said “I’m making a sloppy joes recipe but putting it on fries instead of in a bun” and she disgustedly replied with ‘it’s not a sloppy joes if it’s not in a bun, you’ve made chilli cheese fries. Also they’re wedges not fries’. Thank you Jess. So here we are with some US comfort food but slimmed down (or made British, I’m saying).

1) slice 1 potato into wedges (skin on) and par boil for 5 min.

2) peel a small sweet potato and chop into fries shapes.

3) roll the potato and sweet potato in olive oil, season, and place on a baking tray in the oven at 180 degrees c for 30 mins.

4) brown mince in a heavy own on the hob.

5) add 1 chopped red onion, minced garlic, chill flakes and smoked paprika.

6) add 2 chopped salad tomatoes, 1 orange pepper and cook for 5 min.

7) stir in 1 small tin of baked beans, place a lid on and simmer for 10 mins.

8) remove potatoes from the oven and let cool slightly, then put on a plate, pile on the mince and grate over some cheddar.

Totally deelicious y’all! (sorry)
