Instructions
  1. PREHEAT THE OVEN TO 400°F AND LINE A LARGE BAKING SHEET WITH PARCHMENT PAPER OR FOIL DRIZZLED WITH A TOUCH OF OIL. ADD ALL OF THE CUBED POTATOES INTO A LARGE BOWL, DRIZZLE WITH A LITTLE OIL, AND SEASON WITH A COUPLE OF GOOD PINCHES OF SALT AND PEPPER; TURN THEM OUT ONTO YOUR BAKING SHEET, AND ROAST FOR 40 MINUTES, OR UNTIL TENDER; THEN, ALLOW THEM TO COOL SLIGHTLY UNTIL THEY CAN BE HANDLED, AND TURN THE OVEN TEMP DOWN TO 350°F. WHILE THE POTATOES ARE ROASTING, PLACE A LARGE NONSTICK SKILLET ON MEDIUM-HIGH HEAT, AND DRIZZLE IN A LITTLE OIL; ADD THE RED ONION, ALONG WITH A PINCH OF SALT AND PEPPER, AND ALLOW THE ONION TO CARAMELIZE FOR ABOUT 10-12 MINUTES, OR UNTIL GOLDEN-BROWN; SPOON OUT ONTO A PLATE OR BOWL, AND SET ASIDE. INTO THAT SAME PAN, ADD THE GROUND BEEF OR TURKEY, IF USING, ALONG WITH A COUPLE OF PINCHES OF SALT AND PEPPER, AND COOK UNTIL NO LONGER PINK; SPOON OUT INTO A BOWL AND SET ASIDE FOR A MOMENT. ONCE THE POTATOES HAVE ROASTED AND ARE SLIGHTLY COOLED, ONCE AGAIN TURN THEM OUT INTO A LARGE BOWL; ADD TO THEM THE FIRE-ROASTED TOMATOES ALONG WITH THE REST OF THE INGREDIENTS THROUGH THE GRANULATED GARLIC, PLUS THE COOKED GROUND BEEF OR TURKEY, IF ADDING, AND ABOUT 1 CUP OF THE CHEESE BLEND (ADD A PINCH OR TWO OF SALT AND PEPPER, IF NEEDED, AS WELL); CAREFULLY TOSS THE INGREDIENTS JUST TO COMBINE. TO ASSEMBLE THE CASSEROLE, ADD YOUR CARAMELIZED RED ONION TO THE BOTTOM OF A 9 X 13 LIGHTLY OILED CASSEROLE DISH, AND TURN THE POTATO/VEGGIE MIXTURE OUT OVER TOP; GARNISH THE CASSEROLE WITH THE REST OF THE CHEESE BLEND, AND BAKE FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES, OR UNTIL THE CHEESE IS MELTED; FINISH WITH THE CHOPPED GREEN ONION AND THE CILANTRO.
