Nutritional information

Nutritional information is not currently available for this recipe.


Wash and scrub the potato, and prick it all over with a fork. Put the potato on a microwave-safe plate and cook in the microwave on full power for 4 minutes. Turn the potato over and heat on full power for a further 4 minutes, or until cooked through.

Check the potato is soft by carefully pushing a sharp knife into the centre.


While the potato cooks, heat the kidney beans through in a pan on the hob. Stir in the sweetcorn and heat for another 2 minutes.


Split the baked potato open and fill it with the bean and sweetcorn mixture. Top with the cheese, and serve.
