For the meat
In a large non-stick or cast-iron skillet heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until translucent, then add the ground beef. Cook, stirring often and breaking the meat into small pieces until the meat is cooked through, 5-8 minutes.
Take the skillet off the heat and drain any excess grease, it needed.
Return the skillet to the heat and stir in garlic, cumin, chili, oregano, coriander, salt, and pepper.
Add the tomato sauce and simmer the mixture for additional 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Substitute all spices for the meat with a package of taco seasoning. Use grilled chicken instead of ground beef. Omit meat for a vegetarian version but increase the amount of toppings. Top with guacamole instead of chopped avocado. Use sour cream instead of Chipotle burrito sauce (but the sauce is seriously yummy!)
