Notes

TIP: Keep your pan a bit cooler and heat up as necessary to not burn the vegetables or garlic at this stage.
TIP: If you want to increase the spiciness, you can use spicy salsa or add 1 teaspoon of chili powder.
TIP: Make sure to spread the remaining meat mixture over evenly, for a smooth finish.
