Ground Beef Tacos

['1 tablespoon vegetable oil', '1/2 onion, chopped', '1/2 pound ground beef or vegetarian substitute, such as Lightlife Plant-Based Ground', '1 garlic clove, minced', '1 serrano chile, stemmed and chopped', '1/2 teaspoon salt', '1 teaspoon chili powder', '1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper', '1/4 teaspoon ground cumin', '1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese', '1 1/2 cups chopped tomato', '1 1/2 cups chopped iceberg lettuce', '6 taco shells', '1 cup Salsa Picante or favorite salsa', 'optional']

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook the onion until it begins to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add the meat and sear, chopping with a spatula into small pieces until the pink color is gone. Add the garlic and chile and cook for 2 minutes or until the garlic is soft. Add the salt, chili powder, black pepper, cumin, and a tablespoon of water, mix well, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until well blended.
To assemble the tacos, put 1/4 cup meat mixture, then 1/4 cup each cheese, chopped tomato, and lettuce on each taco shell. Drizzle with salsa if desired.
