How to Make It

Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and red pepper. Sauté until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the ground beef and brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, and salt. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 12 minutes. Spoon onto the buns, sprinkle with the Cheddar, and top each sandwich with a dollop of the sour cream.

Tip: If you have any leftover filling, use it for tacos the next day. Scoop the meat into a shell and add salsa.

Good flavor from the spices. We think we like someting a bit more "sloppy" so we might use tomato sauce next time we give it a try. I prefer dill pickles and mustard to the recommended sour cream and shredded cheese. Will definitely go in the dinner roatation.

I thought this was great. Kids liked it too but it wasn't as huge a hit as I thought it would be. I'll make it again though. Quick, easy, tasty, a change from burgers.
