1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder (or to taste, optional)
1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp unsalted beef stock/broth
12 oz shredded cheese blend (about 3 c (or combination of cheddar, Monterey jack and pizza mozzarella)

Step 5: Add in the broth/stock and tomato paste. Stir and cook for another 2 minutes.
Step 6: Remove the beef and place it in a mixing bowl. Discard any excess grease.
