Preheat your oven to 220°C. Halve the sweet potatoes lengthways and pop them on a baking tray, drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Rub the oil into the potatoes then lay them skin-side down on the baking tray. Roast on the top shelf of your oven until tender and the knife slips in easily, 30-40 mins.


Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large saucepan on medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the beef mince and cook until browned, 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Use a wooden spoon to break it up as it cooks. While it cooks, drain and rinse the kidney beans in a sieve.


Drain and discard any excess fat from the beef, then season with salt and pepper. Add the Central American spice mix and roughly squish in half of the kidney beans with your hands (to break them up). Stir in the remaining kidney beans, tomato passata, beef stock paste, water and sugar (see ingredients for both amounts).


Bring the mixture to the boil, then cover with a lid, turn the heat to low and leave to cook slowly for the same amount of time your potato needs. In the meantime, put your feet up. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.


Once everything is ready, taste the chilli and add salt and pepper if you feel it needs it.


Serve the jacket sweet potato halves on plates with the chilli spooned on top. Grate over the cheese at the table and use scissors to snip the chives over the top. Enjoy!
