1 pound (90 percent lean) ground beef

Making Home Made Beef Tacos
1. Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add the onion and cook until soft and transparent, about 4-5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, spices, 1 teaspoon salt and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
2. Stir in the ground beef with your hands breaking down into small chunks. Cook until no longer pink about 5 minutes, the whole while continue to break meat down into even smaller pieces using a wooden spoon.
3. Stir in the tomato sauce, broth, vinegar and sugar. The entire mixture will be very loose. Simmer until thickened, about 10-15 minutes to let flavors incorporate. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
4. Serve with all the fixins! This is where I go crazy...my favorite toppings include: cilantro, green onions, black olives, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, shredded lettuce, sour cream,fresh tomato salsa, guacamole and your favorite hot sauce .
