    1 cup green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    0.5 cup onion, chopped finely
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 2%
    Black pepper, garlic, and cumin to taste


Preheat oven to 350.

Coat a skillet with cooking spray and heat. Add peppers and onions, cooking until softened.

Add ground beef and cook, stirring often until meat is browned. Season with black pepper, garlic, and cumin powder to your tastes.

Meanwhile, coat a 9x12 baking dish with cooking spray. Layer potato slices to cover the bottom, then top with half of the meat mixture. Layer the rest of potato slices, top with remaining meat mixture, then sprinkle with cheese all over the top of the dish.

Bake for 35 min. or until potatoes are softened and cheese is melted and bubbly.

    This was delicious! I also added taco seasoning to the ground beef for an extra zing and also a can of black beans. Also, be careful with the thickness of your potato slices. I had to bake it a bit longer, as I cut mine too thick. Next time I will slice them thinner! Other than that, it was great! - 8/28/08

    I added a can of chilies, a can of corn and a can of diced tomatoes and it was great. - 6/6/08

    This was ok but I won't make it again. Layers are sparse; used a smaller size pan. It REALLY needs something-- tomatoes w/chilis maybe. Or instead of cheese on top, some sort of cheese sauce mixed in. I used taco seasoning-- the meat & veg part tasted good but potatoes were VERY bland. - 11/2/14

    Very Good!!! We added mushrooms and taco seasoning, and there was some serious heat there! Ate it with some salsa, and it was soooo hearty! - 5/16/11

    Was looking for a potato side dish so left out the hamburger, added some milk for moisture, and it was excellent. - 10/25/09
