      Not enough chili sauce and beef and too much tomato puree (it really made the flavor bland). I think its a good start but not enough spice for the Texas taste. I'll try it again, but with some modification. I'm not sure about flour tortillas, I may experiment with corn tortillas to see if it absorbs the exta sauce.
