1. Heat oil in a large skillet for 2 minutes over medium-high heat until the hot oil sizzles. Add ground beef and stir well to cook evenly until browned, about 6-8 minutes. Make sure to break up beef into small pieces to help even browning.
2. Add cumin, chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, oregano, salt, pepper, tomato paste and beef broth. Reduce heat to medium and let the mixture simmer for 3-5 minutes until the sauce thickens a bit, stirring occasionally. Turn off heat and set aside.
3. Heat the soft flour tortillas according to the package instructions, or heat in an ungreased skillet over medium-high heat for 30 seconds per side. You can also heat it directly on a gas burner for a few seconds to get char marks on the edges.
4. Add 2-3 tablespoons of the ground beef mixture on each tortilla. Top with cheese, onion, tomato and cilantro. Add a dollop of sour cream and a squeeze of fresh lime juice, to taste.

2. After an hour, if the water hasn't evaporated, keep simmering until it has. There will be a lot of beef fat in the pan, but leave it in there! Remove from heat, spoon beef into a bowl and set aside.

4. Add all of the guacamole ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth. If you don't have a food processor, chop up the onion some more, mix everything by hand, then blend until smooth in a blender. Place in a bowl and set aside
