Start of by heating a large skillet over medium-high heat add olive oil, and brown the beef, when the beef starts browning add the chipotle powder, chili powder, oregano, cayenne pepper powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cumin breaking it up with a wooden spoon until the beef is all browned and crumbly. Then add the tomato paste and stock and cook for 1-2 minutes.
