Ground Beef and Potato Taco Bowl

Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo and I wanted to celebrate by trying out a new recipe. After some brainstorming, I decided to create a ground beef and potato taco bowl. Ground beef and potato taco bowl is a delicious and satisfying meal that combines the flavors of seasoned ground beef, crispy potatoes, and all your favorite taco toppings. The dish typically starts with browning ground beef in a skillet with onions and a blend of Mexican spices like cumin, chili powder, and paprika. The meat is cooked through and flavorful and the diced potatoes are baked in the oven to crisp up and soak up all the tasty seasonings.

Once the beef and potatoes are cooked to perfection, they are served in a bowl alongside toppings like beans, pico de gallo, guacamole, shredded cheese, sour cream, chipotle aioli, and/or salsa. This customizable meal allows you to mix and match your favorite ingredients to create a taco bowl that suits your tastes perfectly. Whether enjoyed for lunch or dinner, ground beef and potato taco bowl is sure to become a family favorite for its hearty flavors and easy preparation. Yes, I did mention it would be simple. Although there are many pieces, you should be able to finish it all in under an hour. The end result was absolutely delicious and definitely a recipe I'll be making again!
