Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium skillet cook ground beef over medium-high heat until browned, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat. Stir tomato, sweet pepper, vinegar, cumin, and oil into meat in skillet.

  • Place a romaine leaf on each tortilla. Spoon half of the cooked ground beef mixture on top of each lettuce leaf.

  • Completely roll up each filled tortilla (see Tip). If desired, secure roll-ups with skewers.


Tip: If desired, before assembling the roll ups, tear off two 15-inch-long pieces of foil. Place a tortilla on each piece of foil. Continue as directed in Step 2. Roll the foil with each tortilla until completely rolled up. Seal one end. To eat, peel back the foil from the unsealed end.
