  • 2 Medium Russet Potatoes,
  • 3 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Cup Yellow Onion, Chopped
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, Chopped
  • 2-3 Clove Garlic, Minced
  • 8 Ounces Ground Beef, 80-20%
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper


  • Preheat broiler to high.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into small cubes. Place cubed potatoes in a bowl of cold water, swishing them around to remove starch. Drain in a colander and rinse. Spread potatoes out paper towels and pat dry.
  • Add oil to a cast iron skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and cook, stirring as needed, until the potatoes are fork tender and browned on most sides. 
  • Sprinkle potatoes with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Stir in the onions, red bell pepper and garlic to the skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring until golden brown.
  • Stir in the beef, chili powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and cook, breaking up any clump, until brown, about 5 minutes. Drain any excess fat.
  • Add the potatoes back to the skillet and mix in. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the top of the skillet. 
  • Place skillet under preheated broiler until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Serve.
