Step 1

Preheat the stove to a medium heat.

Step 2

Cut up the meat, onion, and green pepper into thin strips, usually as long as half of the tortillas being used.

Step 3

Put the vegetables into a large pan and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Cook for about 7 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Step 4

Add the meat to the pan with the vegetables and continue stirring occasionally for an extra 7 to 13 minutes, until the meat is cooked all the way through.

Step 5

Preheat another stove top to a medium-high heat to heat up the tortillas. If you are heating up flour tortillas, it's best to heat them up on a low-medium heat to prevent burning and sticking.

Step 6

When all is done, add a dash of salt or a favorite spice to your tacos and enjoy.

Extra vegetables, pico de gallo, and cheese can be added to your tacos. It's all about your taste preference!
