In a large skillet on medium high heat, heat up one tablespoon of olive oil and cook the onion for one minute.  Then add in the bell peppers, season with salt and black pepper to taste and continue to cook for two more minutes or until the peppers are a bit softer. (if you like the peppers to be super soft, feel free to cook them for a longer time!)

Then add in the minced garlic and season with the chili powder, dry orégano, ground cumin, black pepper and salt to taste.  Stir so the meat will be well seasoned, and cook for one more minute so the garlic will start releasing its flavor.

Then add in the juice of one lime, stir, taste the flavor add more salt and pepper if needed, then continue to cook, until all the liquid in the skillet is evaporated.

After the liquid in the skillet is evaporated, now add in the onions and bell peppers back into the skillet, also add chopped cilantro to taste, stir  and cook for two more minutes or until everything is well heated through.

Once everything is well heated. Now you can serve it.

You can serve it on flour tortillas or tostadas, garnish with avocado slices and your favorite salsa.
