Herbs & Spices makes this meat sauce delicious!

Add in peppers as part of the sauce, or serve them as a topping.

On medium heat, place in a frying pan: onion, garlic, oregano and pepper flakes in olive oil, allow to saute` for 4 minutes. (next, may add in vegetables with cumin and allow to cook for 5 minutes) Add ground meat breaking it down with wooden spoon until brown and crumbly. Add salt, tomato sauce and water, stirring, incorporate all ingredients, cover and allow flavors to come together for 5 minutes.Remove from heat and turn off stove.

Prepare your taco and burrito topping the meat sauce with favorite toppings: sliced avocado, tomato, pepper sticks, lettuce, re-fried beans, rice, bacon, cheese, guacamole, mayonnaise or sour cream.

If sensitive to spicy foods, drink a glass of milk with your dinner. The milk fat covers the acidity of tomato seeds combined into tomato sauce and also calms the strength of the spice so that digestion is easier on those with lower tolerance of spicier foods.

Feeling adventurous! Make your own burrito style bread; bringing a bit of Indian cooking to your table.
