2 1/2 cups
Saute the beef in a heavy skillet until almost browned. Add the onion, bell pepper, and chiles and continue to saute until the onions are soft. Add the potato and continue to cook for an additional minute. Pour off any accumulated fat.
Combine all the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, add the meat and mix well.
