These turned out well but I did add some smokey paprika to the sauce to ramp up the flavor a bit more. I think next time will add chopped green chilis to the beef mix also. Southwest flour tortillas also added to the flavor. I skipped the messy step of dipping the tortillas in sauce. I ladled a little on the tortilla, swirling it around the tortillas, then added the beef mix and cheese, rolled them up and added the remaining sauce on top and this worked well.
