  2. Brown the beef in a saucepan until halfway browned.
  3. Add the onions, bell pepper, diced tomatoes and garlic and saute with the ground beef for 6 to 7 minutes until the beef is brown and the onions are clear.
  4. Add the beef stock, veggie stock, tomato paste and milk, stir well.

  6. Add the paprika, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper (if using); Stir well.
