Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9. 
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks.
  • Pop onto a lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil then season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, spread out and roast until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.
  • Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Cut into 2cm chunks. 
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Brown the Beef
2
  • Meanwhile, place a large pan over medium-high heat (no oil).
  • When hot, add the beef and cook until browned, 4-5 mins. Break it up with a spoon as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle. 
  • Add the pepper, garlic and Mexican spice mix to the pan with a drizzle of oil if needed. 
  • Cook until softened, stirring occasionally, 5-7 mins. Season with salt and pepper.
Simmer the Sauce
3
  • Pour 100ml water (double for 4p) into the pan along with the beef stock powder.
  • Stir in the passata, bring to the boil then reduce the heat to medium.
  • Allow to simmer and thicken, stirring occasionally, until there is almost no liquid left, 12-15 mins. 

TIP: Add a splash of water if the consistency becomes too dry.

Smash the Avocado
4
  • Meanwhile, halve the avocado and remove the pit. Use a spoon to scoop the flesh out into a bowl.
  • Halve the lemon and add a squeeze of juice to the bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper
  • Mash the avocado with a fork.
  • Taste and add more salt, pepper and lemon juice as desired.
Top with Potatoes
5
  • Once the sauce in the pan has thickened, season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Spoon into an appropriately-sized oven dish, top with the roast potatoes and sprinkle over the cheese.
  • Bake on the top shelf of your oven until the cheese has melted and is golden, 8-10 mins.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Dish up spoonfuls of Mexican spiced cheesy beef hash. 
  • Top with freshly made guacamole.
  • Chop any remaining lemon into wedges and serve alongside for squeezing over.
