2. Turn the heat up to medium-high. Add the ground chuck and cook, stirring and breaking up the lumps, for about 5 minutes, or until it is no longer pink.

3. Drain the chiles; finely chop the olives (about ¾ cup). Add 1 cup water, the chili sauce, chiles, olives, prunes, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to the skillet; simmer for 10 minutes, or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Stir in the lemon juice, hot sauce to taste and salt and pepper to taste. Divide the mixture among the buns and serve.
