Ingredient List

  • 2 medium baking potatoes
  • 250g frozen meat-free vegetarian mince
  • 175g Old El Paso™ Thick 'N' Chunky Salsa
  • 1 teaspoon mild chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons Old El Paso™ Soured Cream
  • Fresh chopped chives, to garnish


  1. Pierce the potatoes with a fork. Place on microwave-safe paper towel in the microwave. Microwave on High for 5-7 minutes or until tender, turning and rearranging potatoes once halfway through cooking.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the frozen vegetarian mince, salsa, chili powder and 60ml of water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook over a low heat for 4-5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.
  3. To serve, cut the potatoes in half lengthwise and mash the flesh with a fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon the vegetarian mince mixture over potatoes and top each with a dollop of soured cream and garnish with chopped chives.
