Spicy Beef Tacos

With all the chicken we have been having lately, I decided it was time to mix it up and make something that we haven't had in a while. I decided on these Spicy Beef Tacos. I should really call them tacos with a kick. They are great served hard or soft shell but I prefer using hard shell tacos for this recipe. They are delicious!

Spicy Beef Tacos

1 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon Sriracha powder
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
Pinch of salt
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I like the mexican five cheese blend)
1 cup tomatoes, chopped
2 cups shredded lettuce
10 hard or soft shell tacos
Sour Cream (optional)

Brown ground beef in large skillet over medium-high heat, drain and return to pan. Add water, chili powder, cumin, sriracha powder, cayenne pepper and salt to beef mixture. Stir, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes. Spoon meat mixture in tacos and top with remaining ingredients.
