Tortillas and Filling


The tortilla is simple makes 8 tortillas.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp no salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 tbl olive oil

Filling is just ground hamburger and kidney beans. I fry the hamburger like taco meat and the beans like normally making refried beans.

The seasoning is

  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp Black pepper
  • 1 tsp Mrs Dash table blend
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp oregano


I mixed 500mg of ground beef and 500mg of beans with all the seasonings.

Then put 80mg of filling in each tortilla with 20mg of cheddar cheese and 2ml about a 1/2tsp of Valentina hot sauce. This is 30+mg sodium all by it self but I like the taste.

Rolled them up and froze a few after I ate one.

I cooked them in my air fryer on turbo for 15 minutes. I am going to attempt a microwaved one in a few days just to see what they taste like. I am not a fan of microwaved food.

*****The tortilla recipe I got from an old roommate from Juarez. How to cook the taco meat from him too. I take the ground beef and cook it in a cup of water to break it up more than just cooking it by itself. The beans too. I like the taste of kidney beans more than pinto beans so I use them. But some people don’t (my wife)… The seasonings I started with a base recipe off Allrecipes and changed it to my taste.
