DIRECTIONS

  • Saute onion in oil in a large skillet over medium low heat until translucent. Add jalapeno and cook about 10 minutes more. Remove onion and peppers and set aside.
  • Raise heat to medium and quickly brown ground beef. Drain off fat and return onions and peppers. Add tomatoes, garlic, bouillon, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Saute over low heat for 15 minutes.
  • This can also be prepared using beef broth rather than the bouillon. You would add it at the same time, just cook until desired consistency.
