Using Ore-Ida Potatoes O'Brien with Onions and Peppers is the best shortcut ever. You can also add additional diced purple onions and bell pepper using yellow and red. Also adding cheese, sour cream, and jalapenos. Flour tortillas are the best source to wrap these cheesy tacos into.

Bake in oven for 45-50 minutes at 375 degrees. Make sure to check doneness after 45 minutes; all ovens are not the same cooking temperatures. When done add remaining cheese, let melt.
Use this as a casserole or add 1 Tbsp of mixture onto flour tortillas and roll or leave open as a taco.
