DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400º.
  • In a large bowl mix beef (or chicken), chilis, cilantro, cumin, oregano, cheeses, crushed red pepper flakes and green onions. Divide mixture into 6 portions – about ½ cup each.
  • Place one portion of the meat/cheese mixture in a line on the tortilla, leaving room to fold.
  • Fold sides over to about 1” each side – just covering filling.
  • Roll up from the bottom. Using a pasty brush, brush seam side with a little olive oil. Place seam side down on baking sheet.
  • Repeat for remaining tortillas.
  • Brush tops with remaining olive oil.
  • Bake on center rack of oven at 400º for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Garnish as desired and serve with refried beans, rice or salad.
