I came across this recipe on Just A Pinch but modified it quite a lot to fit the ingredients I already had on hand. The original recipe called for a package of taco seasoning instead of cumin, salt and red pepper, so if you have a package of taco seasoning, go ahead and use that! The original also called for chopped onions, but I used chopped bell peppers (green, yellow and red, although just green would be fine) and onions. And six flour tortillas seemed like an awful lot to me, so I reduced mine to four. With all the substitutions I made, it still turned out great! It’s a fairly quick weeknight meal to prepare, too!

7. Drop half of the meat and bean mixture over tortillas. It was a fairly thick mixture so I ended up using my (clean) hands to help spread it evenly.
