Lauren Fishman


10 flour tortillas
2 Tbs. vegetable oil
small red onion, minced
1 lbs. ground beef
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 Tbs. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. coriander
1 tsp. salt
1 cups tomato sauce

small head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1 small yellow or red bell pepper, sliced
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
1 avocado, sliced
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup sour cream
cup thinly sliced radishes
4 fresh jalapeno peppers, seeds removed and sliced

1. Heat the oven to 250. PLace the tortillas, one at a time, in a lare nonstick skillet over medium heat and warm for 1 minute, flipped once or twice, until soft. Wrap them in a dish towel and keep them warm in the oven.
2. To make the beef filling, heat the oil in the skillet over medium. Add the onion and saute for 3 minutes or until soft. Add the ground beef and cook, stirring to break up the meat until it is no longer pink (about 4 minutes). Pour off the liquid.
3. Add the garlic, chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt and tomato sauce. Cook, stirring occasionally, over low heat for 10 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, add a few teaspoons of water.
4. Meanwhile place your toppings in separate small bowls and set them on the table.
5. Place the warm tortillas in a basket and the beef in a bowl. Allow each person to build their own tortilla, then fold them up.
