  1. In a large skillet on medium high heat add the beef, salt, pepper, 3/4 of the onions and green bell pepper, cooking well, breaking it apart but leaving some chunks for about 5-6 minutes.

  2. Reduce the heat to medium and add in the garlic, chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, tomato puree, ketchup and beef broth, cooking until the sauce starts to evaporate and the mixture becomes "sloppy" (about 5-6 minutes).

  3. Spoon the mixture onto the brioche buns and top with sour cream, remaining white onion and shredded cheddar cheese.
