Recipe adapted from Growing Up Sarita.


  • 1 lb. ground chicken, turkey, or beef
  • 3 roma tomatoes
  • 1 white onion 1/2 diced, 1/2 whole
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 1-2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. meat seasoning of your choice
  • 1 1/2tsp. chicken bouillon
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • Salt, to taste
  • Serve in tacos, tostadas, salad, etc.


  1. Prep Sauce/Salsa: In a stock pan boil tomatoes, 1/2 whole onion, garlic and jalapeno until tomato skin begins to peel up. After letting them cool for a bit add them to a blender along with the cumin, meat seasoning, chicken bouillon, and salt and pepper and blend together into a sauce.
  2. In a deep skillet, heat your oil of preference over medium heat and sauté diced onions. When onions are translucent add ground meat and brown.
  3. When meat is browned, add potatoes to meat mixture and pour tomato sauce/salsa over meat and potatoes and bring to a boil. Bring to simmer and cover until potatoes are cooked, around 18 minutes.  Taste, and adjust seasoning, as necessary.
