Targaryen Tacos: spicy food for people who can't catch on fire

So, you've been looking for a way to spice up your life and have the added benefit of being a person who doesn't get burned in fire. Awesome. You're just like our fave, Daenerys Targaryen, who sat in fire with her dragon eggs and come morning in the smoldering fire... behold! Dragons babies! Totally-unharmed-skinny-blonde-girl! Not getting burned in fire is a great skill to have. It opens up a whole world of foods to you...but we're not going to get too crazy. Today, we bring you delicious Targaryen Tacos.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 5-10 people


1 pound ground beef
1/2 yellow bell pepper
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 medium sized jalapeno pepper
1 roma tomato
30 cilantro leaves
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
1 tsp onion powder
Dash of salt
Juice from 1 fresh lime

Preparing the Taco Meat...

Step 1: Slice half of each of the bell peppers into thin strips and place a medium size bowl. Finely chop the half jalapeno and place in bowl. Chop roma tomato and add it to the bowl. Very finely chop the cilantro leaves and add them as well.

Step 2: Place ground beef in a skillet and put it on the stove. With the heat on high, use a wooden spoon to break up the meat. Continue to break and stir the beef until it is completely browned. When it's browned thoroughly, remove the grease with a strainer.

Step 3: Pour water over the beef and stir in chili powder, garlic salt, ground red pepper, onion powder, and salt. Add the vegetables and stir in well. Continue stirring for 3-4 minutes. Squeeze the juice of one lime over the beef and stir in. Allow the meat to simmer on low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately.

I like my tacos with freshly chopped roma tomatoes, grated mozzarella cheese, and salsa. Dress your taco however you like, but I guarantee you'll love the beef.
