Cheesy Chilli Chips

Image ©
Now I know this recipe isn't fancy or sophisticated, but it tastes pretty darn good as an occasional meal or snack, especially when the kids have just come back from swimming! You can make it using oven chips (omit the oil) or home baked potato wedges...it's up to you!
  • 2-4 potatoes, washed but not peeled
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ - 1tsp mild chilli powder or jerk seasoning
  • 50g/2oz grated mozzarella or Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp jalapeno chillies, optional 
Recipe ShedPre-heat the oven to 200C/Gas 6
Cut the potatoes into wedges, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with chilli powder/jerk seasoning.
Cook for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally.
Sprinkle with the grated cheese, and return to the oven for a further minute or two to melt the cheese.
Serve with on their own, in a butty or with a veggie sausage and baked beans.

Alternatives: Use a variety of peeled root veg (parsnips, carrots and sweet potato). Veganise by topping with vegan cheese, or omitting the cheese. 
Top with chopped jalapeno chillies if you like them spicy!
