Carne Molida con Papas

In need of an easy meal??? Well, look no further! This is one of the easiest meals to make. I tend to make this often...specially when I run out of ideas. You can make this and eat it with tortillas like a burrito. You can use this as the meat dish for tostadas, or some delicious sopes (post to come)! It can also be the perfect filling for fried empanadas.

Anyway, the list goes on.


1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2-3 tomatoes, diced
4 potatoes, diced (it really depends on the size of the potatoes, so as many as you want)
2-3 fresh jalapenos, diced
cilantro, chopped (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste
Mozarella or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (optional)

In a skillet begin to cook the meat, add salt and pepper. When the meat is practically done, add the remaining ingredients (except for the cheese), add more salt and pepper if necessary (I usually do). Cook on medium heat (mix when needed) until potatoes are tender. When potatoes are ready, add cheese, and serve when cheese has melted. Enjoy!!

Note: I once added fresh chopped spinach to it and it was great. So if you are in the need of using is a great dish.
