In a Ziploc bag, add the cornstarch, chili powder, onion powder, sugar, garlic powder, and pepper, then seal the bag, and give it a good shake to combine all of the ingredients. Place a pan on a stove over medium-high heat, then add a bit of oil, and let it heat up before adding the ground beef. Break the meat apart, then stir, and cook for a few minutes until lightly browned. Pour in the milk, water, and the combined spices, and stir until nicely combined.
