I made this last night for dinner and it was Soooooo delicious! Husband and kids loved it, too! They've already asked that I make it again next week. :)

  • 1 tsp. olive oil, extra virgin, unrefined and unfiltered, organic
  • 1 tbs. chili powder, organic
  • 1 tbs. garlic powder, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cumin powder, organic
  • 1/2 lbs. beef, grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • 3/4 c. cheddar cheese, mild, raw, organic
  • 2 bell pepper, green, fresh, organic
  • 8 green onion, fresh, organic
  • 2 tomatoes, red, fresh, organic
  • 2 potatoes, white or gold, organic

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13 x 9 baking pan and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add the beef, bell peppers and scallions; cook, stirring as needed, until the beef is browned and the vegetables are softened, 6-8 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, black pepper and sea salt; cook, stirring as needed, until the flavors are blended, in about 5 minutes. ** Please adjust the seasonings to what tastes best to You **

Arrange alternate layers of the potatoes and beef mixture in the baking dish. Cover with foil and bake 40 minutes; uncover and sprinkle evenly with the cheese. Bake until the potatoes are cooked through and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes longer.

My youngest helped me to put this together. She called it potato lasagna lol. You could change the meat to any you like & add any other veggies etc. I will make this again and freeze it for another time. I like to do that because it helps me to be prepared in advance. :)

Please let me know if you like this and any changes that you might make. I love to try new things. :)
