DIRECTIONS

  • Brown together the ground beef or turkey, onion and garlic in a heavy frying pan over medium heat, until meat looses pinkness.
  • Add salt and chili powder to meat, mixing well.
  • Put 1/2 cup of the ground beef filling, 1/2 cup of cheese, and 1/2 cup of tomatoes onto one half of each tortilla adding your jalapeno/green chilies now if you want to use them.
  • Fold the other half of tortilla over and press to remove any air pockets.
  • Heat oil in pan to medium high, and when hot, place filled tortillas into the pan 1 or 2 at a time, size of pan permitting.
  • Saute over medium high heat until golden brown on each side, approximately 45 seconds per side.
  • Remove and place on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
  • Cut into wedges and serve!
