Dad's Tacos

"In honor of my Dad's Birthday this month, I wanted to share his taco recipe.  His recipe is one of my  family's favorites." 

3-1/2 pounds ground beef
garlic powder, dried cilantro, salt, pepper, crushed red pepper and chili powder, to taste
1 green pepper, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup of tomato sauce (or 1/2 of a small can)
1-1/2 packets of taco seasoning
3 Tbsp. salsa or picante sauce
corn or flour tortillas, heated

Toppings:  shredded cheddar cheese, shredded or chopped lettuce, chopped tomatoes, chopped black olives, chopped onion, sour cream and hot sauce

Break ground beef up in a medium-sized non-stick saute pan with a spatula or wooden spoon.  Sprinkle with seasonings.  Add onion, green pepper and garlic.  Saute until ground beef is browned and onions, green pepper and garlic are tender.  Add tomato sauce, taco seasoning and salsa.  Simmer on medium heat for about 30 minutes.  Serve on tortillas with toppings.
