  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 oz ground beef or other ground meat
  • 1/2 bell pepper chopped
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella i used vegan
  • guacamole as a side


  • Preheat skillet to low medium heat with olive oil. Cook garlic until fragrant, then add in ground beef and cook until no longer pink.
  • Add in bell peppers to cook for 1 more minute, then stir in spinach until wilted. Remove from pan and leave to side.
  • Add a tad bit more oil to pan and add corn tortillas to warm up. I let both sides warm up and get a little crispy first. Next, add about 2-3 tbsp worth of the grounds mixture, 1-2 tbsp of mozzarella and then fold in half.
  • Cook until both sides get crispy and light brown, and the cheese starts melting! Serve with guac!
