Recipe #16 - Taco Meat Again!

This past summer and even into fall (tomorrow is October 1st!), we've been eating alot of taco meat done different ways, layered over chips and shredded cheese, topped with a dollop of sour cream.
Last night, to take a break from the handyman bedroom work I had been doing, I decided to use up a pound of ground pork I had just thawed. We also still had tons of green peppers given to us from our neighbor that we needed to use, so I devised this on the fly, while watching Denver crush Philadelphia.

one pound ground pork
one medium yellow onion diced
four or five small green peppers diced
2 banana peppers diced
one Roma tomato diced
one can 14.5 oz seasoned tomatoes
one cup water
ground cumin
hot chili pepper powder
black pepper
garlic powder
onion powder
dried oregano
red pepper flakes
corn chips
shredded colby jack cheese
sour cream

I browned the meat, drained the grease, and added the chopped vegetables to simmer for about ten minutes. Then I added the seasoning and water, cranked it up to high and let the water boil off, stirring occasionally.
Two huge spoonfuls over some chips topped with cheese and voila!
The pepper smell is still lingering in the house a day later; there was no need for Tupperware containers lsst night.
