Mexican Potato Casserole

My boys absolutely love the Fiesta Potatoes at Taco Bell!!! So, when I came across this recipe - I knew we had to give it a try, but I did modify it to fit our own tastes. I originally found this recipe over at the Mennonite Girls Can Cook - and boy can they!!! Go over and take a "look see" - you won't be sorry!!! Thanks Judy, for passing on an awesome recipe!!!

Mexican Potato Casserole

4 medium potatoes, with peel
2 Tablespoons butter
2 1/2 Tablespoons taco seasoning
1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 cup salsa
1/2 cup chopped peppers (red, green or yellow)
2 cups grated Mexican blend cheese

Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces and place in greased casserole dish. Sprinkle taco seasoning over potatoes. Melt butter, pour over potatoes and stir to coat well. Bake uncovered at 425 degrees for 40 minutes. Stir and then put back in the oven for 10 minutes longer. Brown beef with chopped onion and cook until soft...then drain. Stir in salsa and chopped peppers. Pour over potatoes. Top with grated cheese. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes. Serve with additional salsa and sour cream.
