Prep: 15 min. •  Cook: 20 min. •  Serves: 3-4


Ingredients:

  • ¾ lb. Biggins® potatoes, scrubbed and peeled
  • 1 can (14 ½ oz.) diced tomatoes in juice
  • ½ c. water
  • 1 packet (1 ¼ oz.) taco seasoning, divided
  • 4 yellow corn tortillas, cut in half
  • ¾ lb. 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese


Directions:


Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Slice across into ¼ inch-thick half moons.


In mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, water and taco seasoning, reserving 2 teaspoons taco seasoning. Spread 2 tablespoons tomato mixture in bottom of a 1-quart microwave-safe dish. Cover with 4 tortilla halves.


Crumble beef over tortillas and sprinkle with reserved taco seasoning. Sprinkle half the cheese over beef. Add half the remaining tomato mixture. Spread potatoes on top in a single layer. Cover with remaining tortillas. Spread remaining tomato mixture on top and sprinkle with remaining cheese.


Cover tightly with lid or plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 20 minutes (cooking time may vary depending on your microwave) or until potatoes and beef are done. Let sit for 2 minutes. Use oven mitts or tongs to remove from microwave. Remove plastic wrap carefully to prevent burns from steam.
