Potatoes Big ones !
Oil and season lightly with salt and bake in an oven for around an hour And that’s really all I have to say on that .
Grated cheese im using a plant based mozzarella Sour cream dressing ( im using a plant based one )
Take your baked potato and cut approx over half way we want to create a deep cup .
scoop out the inside and mash with a little dairy free spread and seasoning and leave to one side fill you potato cup half way with the chili and pop in a little cheese bomb and cover over with some more chili just below the top because we will now add the mashed potato we scooped out a while ago. Now we pop into the oven at 180 or gas mark 4 for about 20/25 mins to hot all the way through .
once out to oven top with your fresh guacamole and salsa and drizzle with a little sour cream dressing and your sorted the match ...
TIP if you bake small potatoes you can make little bombs of flavor to serve as party food for the match ....enjoy
