Mix together:

1 tbsp. chili powder

1/2 teas. black pepper

1 teas. cumin, paprika, salt, sugar, onion and garlic powder

1 teas. corn starch (optional thickener)

1/4 teas. cayenne pepper (optional)

Brown 1 lb. ground beef, and drain.  Put back in pan; add all ingredients and stir well, then add 3/4 cup water. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.

Put beef in taco shells, enchiladas, or burritos.

If you want you, can omit the corn starch, and use as a dry marinate for beef and chicken fajitas; or add to beans.
