Mexican Chilli Chicken

A simple but effective variation on chilli con carne – using chicken instead of beef. As always, vary the recipe to suit your tastes. As hot or as mild as you like. Great served with rice, jacket potatoes or tortilla chips but we chose to have them on a warmed tortilla just like fajitas….. lush!…

Use a potato that’s good for roasting such as Maris Piper. The cheese can be whatever you like. I used a mature cheddar and it worked great….
