 Mix the cooked potatoes into the chilli beef and continue to cook on a low heat.  Toss together the tomatoes with the remaining coriander and a pinch of salt and pepper, drizzle over a little olive oil with a squeeze of lime and the remaining tbsp of diced red onion, mix together.  Serve your chilli, place the cubed feta on top with the green pieces of spring onion and the tomato salad on the side.
