"mandy's" chilli con carne
with bullet potatoes and avocado
right up, i'll admit i wasn't going to partake in this challenge seeing that cooking 'isn't my thing', but then i thought i do cook and i do have a fav recipe.
this is it!
i usually make a big batch and freeze it in zip lock bags for a simple lunch at work.
but the bullet potatoes and avocado bit is what i will call mine.
bullet potatoes: really, really easy. just rub potatoes with olive oil and sea salt and pick all over with a fork. place in a pre heated oven (220 degrees – that's celcius not fahrenheit bron – seeing that you're american now). takes about and hour to 90 minutes. they go crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.
avocado topping: score halved avocados into little squares (don't know the correct kitchen terminology for that one) and scoop out flesh with a spoon. squeeze generously with fresh lime and season with a bit of sea salt and pepper.
put it all together.
easy, quick and oh so yummy.
(note to bron: i usually put grated cheese on mine too, but without it i think it's pretty 'ellable'. obviously you'd have to omit the cayenne pepper and jalapeno's for kids. i just love hot food so i put in extra.)
