Chile Con Queso

Ingredients

    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1/2 large yellow onion, diced
    1 jalapeño, diced
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon onion powder
    1 teaspoon cayenne
    1 tablespoon cumin
    1 tablespoon paprika
    1 pound (15% fat) ground beef
    1 can diced tomatoes, drained

  1. To garnish:
    Fresh jalapeño, sliced
    Fresno chilies, diced

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a wide sauté pan over medium heat. Sweat the onion and jalapeño until translucent. Add salt and spices and cook 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
