  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 25 minutes.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, cook ground beef in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Add taco seasoning and stir until meat is coated; set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook until slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in frozen corn, water, and tomato paste.
