1 Microwave the potatoes for 8-10 minutes on high. Turn over and microwave for a further 4-5 minutes, or until soft.

2 Meanwhile, put the pepper, onion, sweetcorn, tomatoes and coriander in a non-stick saucepan. Stir in the kidney beans in chilli sauce and bring to a gentle simmer. When hot, remove from the heat and stir in the lime zest.
