Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add beef, garlic, cinnamon and oregano; cook, stirring, until the beef is no longer pink, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain off fat; return the meat to the skillet. Stir in water and tomato paste; cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Season with pepper.

  • Spread the meat on tortillas, dot with feta and fold each tortilla in half.

  • Heat a large dry skillet over medium-high heat. Place two of the filled tortillas in the skillet and toast until heated through, about 1 minute per side. Repeat with the remaining filled tortillas. Cut each one into 4 wedges and serve hot.

Delicious but meat portion seems off I love this recipe. Although the cinnamon seems strange I think it combines well with the flavors of the meat and oregano. I'm not sure if 3oz. of beef is accurate for this recipe. That just doesn't seem like enough meat to fill four 8 tortillas and/or feed 4 people nor do the calories add up. Given the listed ingredients divided by four I came up with 128 calories for this recipe not the 219 listed. That's too big of a discrepancy to account for differences in calories by brand. Whenever I make this I use closer to 6oz of meat which by my calculations still puts the recipe in the sub-200 calories range. Pros: unique tasty easy Read More
