  • 1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese (2 oz)
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions (8 medium)

    In 10-inch skillet, cook beef, onion, salt, cumin, coriander and chili powder over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown.

    Want more toppings? Try sour cream, hot sauce, pickled jalapeños, chopped cilantro, sliced ripe olives or some of each!
