Method

Heat the oven to 180°C.

Parboil the potatoes for 12 minutes or microwave for six.

While they are cooking, fry the onion until soft and add the garlic, peppers and mince, chillies, spices and season well. Cook for three minutes on high. Add the tomatoes and cook for two minutes.

Drain the potatoes and put them in a large, deep baking tray, cover with the chilli mince and half the grated cheese and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.

While this is cooking, make the guacamole and salsa. Mash the avocado in a bowl with a fork and mix in the remaining ingredients. Check and adjust the seasoning. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix together all the salsa ingredients and set aside.

To serve, remove the chilli from the oven, sprinkle over the coriander leaves, remaining cheese and chilli flakes then top with the crème fraiche, salsa and guacamole.
