Beef Taco

This is a very quick and easy taco recipe....yummy too :)
We at home are big fan of tacos..or say for that matter any mexican food...bcoz we love spicy food..something that tickles your taste buds :)

You'll need:

Ground lean beef: 1 lb
Olive oil: 2tbsp
Onion: 1 large (thinly chopped)
Chili powder: 1 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder: 1/2 tsp
Oregano: 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon powder: 1/4 tsp
Garlic cloves: 2-3 (thinly chopped)
Black pepper powder: 1/2 tsp
Red bell pepper: 1 (nicely chopped)
Taco seasoning: 1 tsp(optional)

For Garnish:
Shredded Cheddar and Mozzarella cheese

For serving:
12 soft tacos (you can use flour or corn tortilla)

How to make:

Place a large skillet on medium heat and pour the olive oil.
Put the ground beef, crumble and cook it till the liquid evaporates and the meat is nicely browned.
Add the chopped onion, garlic and saute for 3-4 minutes.
Add the chopped red bell pepper.
Season with chili powder,cumin powder,oregano, cinnamon, black pepper and the taco seasoning.
Stir it all together and let it hang out for another couple minutes.Cover the skillet and keep it warm.

In the mean time, warm the tacos on the stove top for 2 min on each side.Store them in a tortilla warmer or a hot pot.(Or if you want the tacos to be warm till you serve, fold them in foil and pop them in the oven at 350 F for about 10 min.And keep them in warm till you are ready to serve)

When you are ready to eat, spread the beef mixture on the taco and garnish it with the shredded cheese....yummm :)

P.S: You can add a twist to it by using a variety of other toppings like shredded lettuce, diced tomato, a dollop of sour cream, sliced onion or anything you enjoy :)
