Place the oil in a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Add onion to skillet; cook for 3 to 4 minutes until it starts to turn translucent. Add ground beef to skillet; cook and stir, breaking up the ground beef with the back of a spoon, until browned. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the fat from the skillet. Add garlic, chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, tomatoes, salt, and black pepper to skillet; stir to combine. Add water to skillet, bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer for about 20 minutes or until the mixture has thickened and there is very little liquid remaining. Add vinegar to skillet; stir. Assemble tacos by spooning the picadillo beef filling into all of the taco shells. Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and salsa. And additional toppings, if desired.
