I have had this recipe saved since January and I am just now getting to it. Does anyone else ever do that? Every so often I really need to go through all the recipes I have marked to try and make a few! This one was pretty easy and verrrrrry tasty.
First, I had to make chopped meat. I put about 3/4 lb of meat in the food processor…
…and chopped it!
While it was in the food processor, I melted tallow in our cast iron skillet.
I browned the meat and set it aside.
Since the skillet still had tallow in it, I added in onions, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and red pepper flakes.
When the onions were soft, I added the beef back in, along with 3 cups of red beans, a smidge of tomato paste, and 1 1/2 cups of diced tomatoes.
When all of the flavors were combined, I added one HUGE shredded potato.
After a sprinkling of salt, I added lots and lots of shredded cheese. I used up all of the bits and pieces of cheese that were in the fridge.
It baked in the oven for 20 minutes at 400*, and then we threw it under the broiler to brown it up.
I loved almost everything about it. The only thing I would tweak would be the potatoes. I didn’t like the way they cooked up. I think next time I would add some fat to the potatoes so they crisped up a bit more. All in all, I would say it was a success!
