I know that the title is a little akward but I couldn't think of anothe way to describe this dish. It has a lot of flavors that appear in mexican dishes but I doubt that you'll ever find this dish in a mexican household. It's just one of those dishes that I came up with because those were the ingredients that I had in the house.
There is nothing particularly difficult about making this dish. In fact, I think just about anyone can make it. It was spicy for my wife so you might want to adjust the chiles and hot sauce for your taste.
1lb ground beef 1 onion, chopped 1 tbsp olive or canola oil 2 tbsp garlic, minced (I really like garlic) 1/8 cup mild hot sauce or taco sauce (I used Cholula) 1 tbsp salt 1 tbsp black pepper 1 tbsp cumin 1tsp oregano 1 tsp chile (not chili) powder (Use you favorite ground chile. I used guajillo.) 1 cup water 1 tomato, chopped
2 cups cooked white rice
Brown the ground beef inÂ large skillet. When the beef is almost done, add in the onion and the olive oil. Cook over medium heat until the onion is wilted. Add the garlic and stir well. Add all of the othe other ingredients except the tomato and the rice. Stir well, cover and simmer of medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer for another five minutes. Serve over rice.
If it's a little too spicy for you, add some cheese and sour cream.
