Preheat your oven to 200°C. Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Pop them onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.


Meanwhile, halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 2cm chunks. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).


Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. When hot, add the beef mince and cook until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks, then drain and discard any excess fat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. The mince is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle. Add the pepper to the beef and stir together. Cook until softened, 5-7 mins, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.


Stir the Mexican style spice mix and garlic. Cook for 1 min more. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, water for the beef (see ingredient list for amount) and beef stock paste. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat to medium. Allow to simmer and thicken, stirring occasionally, until there is almost no liquid left, 12-15 mins. TIP: Add a splash more water if becomes too dry.


Meanwhile, roughly chop the chives. Pop the soured cream into a small bowl. Add the chives, season with salt and pepper and mix together. Grate the cheese.


Once the sauce has thickened, season to taste with salt and pepper if needed. Spoon into an ovenproof dish. Top with the roasted potato and sprinkle over the cheese. Bake on the top shelf of your oven until the cheese has melted and golden, 10-12 mins. Serve in deep bowls with a dollop of the chive soured cream on top. Enjoy!
