1/4 cup olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1 large green bell pepper, seeded, deribbed and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minces
2 pounds lean ground beef
3 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons capers
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, green pepper, and garlic. Saute about 5 minutes until the onions are softened, then add the beef. Break up the meat into small pieces while you stir the ingredients. Cook 8-10 minutes, until the meat is lightly browned and cooked through. Add the tomatoes and cumin, cover and reduce heat toe medium-low. Simmer for 15 minutes, then add the capers and simmer 5 minutes longer. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drain some of the juice and serve hot over rice.

Sweetnicks Notes: Very good, easy and flavorful. Added about a quarter-cup of green olives.
