Martha's Taco Meat

Martha Stewart. Bless her crafty little heart. She has an app for ipods/iphones that shows a new dinner recipe everyday. It's like Christmas. It's one of the first things I look at in the morning. A lot of her recipes involve fish, which you might have noticed, we don't do. But one day this beef taco recipe popped up and it is a gem. We ate it two days in a row and then I thought about it on the third day and wished I was having it again. Thank you, Martha.
1 tsp. oil
1 onion, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped (I used red and yellow)
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbs. tomato paste
2 tsp. chili powder
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
salt and pepper
1 lb. lean ground beef

*In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and peppers. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Add 1 cup of water and cook for 3-5 more minutes, until water has evaporated and veggies are softened. Add garlic, paste, chili powder, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Add beef and cook well until crumbly and brown. Season again with salt and pepper. Serve on flour tortillas with toppings that you like. (If you haven't tried the corn tortillas from Trader Joe's, I highly recommend).
