Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 carrots grated
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced jalapeño pepper (or 1/4 tsp/1ml hot pepper sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Method

In large nonstick skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain off fat. Add onion, carrot, garlic,  jalapeño chili powder and salt ; cook over medium heat, stirring often, until onion is softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and coriander.

Spread heaping 1/2 cup (125 mL) beef mixture on half of each tortilla; sprinkle with heaping 2 tbsp (25 mL) cheese. Fold uncovered half over filling. Bake on 2 rimmed baking sheets in top and bottom thirds of 400°F (200°C) oven, turning once and switching and rotating pans halfway through, until crisp, 10 minutes. Cut into wedges.
