Usually this dish is made with pork, but here's a nice variation on the theme from a rather unlikely place -- *Better Homes and Gardens' Mexican Cooking*. I added one morita/chipotle pepper to the beef/onion stage for some extra heat, and I would definitely include cilantro and lime quarters in with the other toppings!
