Janas Yummy Mexican Taco Casserole

What you need: 

1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped (optional)
2 bell peppers, chopped
1 - 2 cans of your favorite beans
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
2 - 3 taco shells, crushed
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cloves (powder is best)
white vinegar

What you do: 

Fry onion and garlic until soft, add in peppers. Fry for about 2 minutes, then add beans, chopped tomatoes, tomato paste. If its too thick, add a bit of water. Now add all the spices and the vinegar and let it cook for about 10 minutes. If the taste isn't strong enough, add in equal amounts of chili powder and vinegar, but no more cloves (they give the recipe the extra zest but if you add in too much its no good). Right before serving mix in crushed taco shells, then serve hot over rice. Enjoy! :)

This recipe looked so good and I have no idea where I went wrong. The amount of spice made my tongue go numb and what should have been good, crispy veggies were drowned in a sea of metallic tomato paste.
