  • 2 cups cubed and peeled potatoes, about 3 large potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped finely
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped finely
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, about 14 ounces
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • avocado, to garnish
  • jalapeño, to garnish
  • cilantro, to garnish
  • green onions, to garnish


  • First, peel and cube potatoes into 1 inch pieces. In a large skillet over medium heat, add potatoes and olive oil.
  • Cook potatoes for 10 minutes or until potatoes have softened.
  • Next, add in ground beef to the skillet. Break up meat as it browns. Once browned, remove excess liquid from pan.
  • Then, add in remaining ingredients (except garnishes). Cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
  • Finally, remove from heat and garnish with avocado, jalapeño and cilantro.


  • Slice potatoes into equal sized pieces no larger than 1 inch cubes.
  • Ground turkey, ground chicken and ground pork can be used in place of the beef.
  • Feel free to adjust seasonings to make this less or more spicy.
  • Continue cooking until potatoes have softened.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
