Chorizo and butterbean baked potatoes



Chorizo and butterbean baked potatoes

We love jacket potatoes, especially with a hearty bean and sausage filling. This inexpensive dish makes a satisfying midweek meal.



  • 4 baking potatoes (200g/7oz each)
  • 200g/7oz cooking chorizo, sliced
  • 2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes with onion and garlic
  • 2 x 400g tins butter beans, drained
  • 50g/1¾oz fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped (optional)
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper




  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7.

  2. Prick the potatoes all over with a fork and microwave on a high heat for 5–6 minutes. Season well with salt. Bake for 10–15 minutes, or until tender. (If you don’t have a microwave, bake for 1 hour at 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7).

  3. Meanwhile, dry-fry the chorizo in a large saucepan over a medium heat for 4–5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and beans and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 12–15 minutes until slightly thickened, stirring often. Season and stir in the basil.

  4. Serve the stew with the baked potatoes.
