Or you could use the 94/6 or leaner meat and there's no grease to rinse off and pour your money down the drain. Just sayin'.

Doglady is right. We also like to rinse 85/15 ground beef under hot water to get rid of all the fat. That makes for a not greasy, but still tasty meat component. Don't use cold water if you try this tip. I did, the first time I tried it. It just makes little fat globs.

Cook your meat first and drain. Then put your pepper , onion and other stuff in it and finish cooking it.
