    Add diced potatoes to the mixture. It is very important that the potatoes are cut into very small pieces so they will cook through. If you use thicker potato chunks you may have to start cooking the potatoes before you brown the ground beef. Personally, I like to dice the potatoes so the pieces are about the same as the chopped onions.

    Add the diced tomatoes and chiles (with liquid), tomato sauce, taco seasoning and cumin. Stir.
