Number of Servings: 6


    5-6 peeled and diced potatoes
    1 lb ground beef (cook in skillet or use leftover meat)
    1 package taco seasoning
    1 tsp season salt
    1 tsp black pepper
    1 cup shredded cheese (I used sharp)
    1/3 cup oil (you can use olive, canola, or vegetable)
    Toppings - Sour cream, salsa, green onions, etc (all optional)


1.First off you want to dice up and peel your potatoes. Once that is done put them in a ziploc bag with 3/4 of the taco seasoning (leave rest to put on meat), oil, season salt and black pepper. Shake the bag until everything is well coated.
2.Then pour the potato mix into a greased pan, and put in a preheated 400 degree oven. Bake for 20 minutes stirring once in between.
3.After the first 20 minutes,You will want to be cooking or reheating your ground beef. Once cooked thru -Stir in the leftover taco seasoning you had leftover. I then added 1/3 cup of water and stirred it around till the meat soaked up the water.
4.Toss in the ground beef with the potato mixture and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Take out and stir then top the mixture with the shredded cheese.
5.Then bake till the cheese is melted and serve. We topped ours off like we would a regular taco, but that is optional!
