Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13- by 9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Add the beef, bell peppers and scallions; cook, stirring as needed, until the beef is browned and the vegetables are softened, 6 to 8 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, black pepper and salt; cook, stirring as needed, until the flavors are blended, about 5 minutes.

Arrange alternate layers of the potatoes and beef mixture in the baking dish. Cover with foil and bake 40 minutes; uncover and sprinkle evenly with the cheese. Bake until the potatoes are cooked through and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes longer.
