Beef N Taters

Today, I didn’t feel much like cooking. My house has become a labyrinth of box pathways that contain the majority of what I have accumulated in life thus far, most of my kitchen gadgets are in boxes because I figured that with 10 days left we could survive off easy meals that require one pot or pan to make so that is exactly what inspired today’s dinner.
Don’t judge the recipe by the name as I know it does not sound too appealing… you can fancy it up if you prefer and call it boeuf et pommes de terre which is beef and potatoes in french so it really isn’t that fancy of a name but everything sounds better in french, non?

Beef N Taters
1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
salt & pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp montreal steak spice
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp worchtershire sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 can (156ml)  tomato paste
1 can (428ml) diced tomatoes
1 can (341ml) creamed corn
1 pkg frozen tater tots
shredded cheese

Preheat oven according to package directions for tater tots.
In a large pan brown meat, add onion and green pepper and cook until onion is translucent. Add seasonings & brown sugar and cook for 2-3 minutes then add canned tomato paste, diced tomatoes and creamed corn and simmer on low until tater tots are done baking.
Serve tater tots with meat topping and shredded cheese.

Easy peasy one pan meal… I don’t count the baking sheet because I make the rules.
