  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7 with a large baking tray in to get hot. Cut the potatoes into 8-10 wedges each, depending on size, and toss with 1½ tbsp oil and some seasoning. Spread out on the hot tray and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

  2. Meanwhile, heat ½ tbsp oil in a flameproof casserole or deep frying pan and fry the meatballs for about 5 minutes, turning until browned on all sides for richness. Roughly chop the onions and add to the meatballs; cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.

  3. Crush the garlic and stir into the pan, adding the chilli con carne seasoning for punch, followed by the baked beans for bulk and half a tinful of water. Simmer gently, uncovered, for 15 minutes.

  4. Cook the broccoli following pack instructions; drain.

  5. Grate the cheese. Spoon the chilli bean meatballs into bowls and serve with the wedges and broccoli for freshness, scattering on the cheese to serve.
