30 Minutes. A great dish for a hungry family.

Serves 2

Ingredients

400g Australian premium beef mince
1/3 cup Australian tasty cheese (grated)
12 cherry tomatoes
40g jalapeños
2 sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons Mexican spice mix
1 red capsicum

Preheat oven & boil water
Preheat the oven to 220ºC fan bake. Bring a pot of salted water to boil.

Prepare sweet potato
Cut sweet potato into thick wedges. Place in water and cook for 5 minutes. Drain in colander and let steam dry – careful not to break up the wedges. Place on a lined bake tray, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat well. Bake for 15 minutes.

Prepare filling
Deseed and finely slice capsicum. Halve the cherry tomatoes. Finely dice jalapenos.

Cook filling
Heat a fry pan on a medium to high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Sauté the capsicum for 2 - 3 minutes. Add mince to pan, breaking up the lumps as it browns. Season with salt and pepper. Once browned all over, add spice mix, jalapenos (to your taste) and stir to combine. Add 1/4 cup of water and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes. Toss through the cherry tomatoes and remove from heat.

To serve
Place sweet potatoes on plates and top with the mince filling, cherry tomatoes 
and sprinkle with cheese to finish.
