  • ½ lb ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder

  • Salt to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped bell pepper
  • ½ teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 onion cut into thin slices
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 ½ cup shredded mozzarella
  • ½ cup sliced black olives
  • 4 to rtillas


  • In a hot pan, add the beef and cook until it releases all the water. Add the onion and keep stirring until the onion is translucent.
  • Add olive oil and rest of ingredients (except both cheeses and olives) and mix well. Cover and let it cook on medium low heat until the beef is cooked.
  • Stir every few minutes to avoid burning the beef. If you find the mixture too dry, add around half cup boiling water and let it cook until the water evaporates.
  • Place few spoons from the cheddar cheese and mozzarella on the tortilla add the beef on top, and then add few olives. Add more cheddar and mozzarella cheese on top, and then add the second tortilla.
  • Place on hot griddle or pan. Cook until the cheese melts and the bottom tortilla is lightly crisp. Flip and cook for almost two minutes.
  • Serve hot with salad.
