ChiboyChuks Opinion: Congrats Guy! Bravo!!! You are a strong example to the youths today. #Thumps up.
AND IF YOU WANT TO MAKE A SIMILAR DISH AT HOME THESE ARE THE STEPS.
Ingredients (to serve four people):
Four large potatoes, washed and cut into wedges
Two tablespoons olive oil
One jar Homepride Chilli Cook-In Sauce
500g beef mince
150g grated cheese
How to make it:
Place the potato wedges into a pan of hot water and simmer for 10 minutes. Then remove from the heat and drain. Place the potatoes into the ovenproof dish and brush the oil over the potatoes.
Bake the potato wedges in a preheated oven to 200ºC / Gas mark 6 for 15 minutes until crispy and browned.
Meanwhile brown your mince in a pan, then pour over Homepride Chilli Cook-In Sauce and simmer until cooked through.
Pour the chilli over your wedges, then sprinkle over the cheese and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Hints and tips:
If you are in a hurry try using some ready made potato wedges and cook as directed on the pack instruction.
