Surprise your taste buds with this Greek twist on the Mexican staple.
1 teaspoon  canola oil
3 ounces  lean ground beef (1/3 cup)
3 cloves  garlic finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon  dried oregano
3 tablespoons  water
1 tablespoon  tomato paste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
4   8-inch tortillas preferably whole-wheat
1/3 cup  crumbled feta cheese (2 ounces)
Heat oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add beef, garlic, cinnamon and oregano; cook, stirring, until the beef is no longer pink, about 1 minute. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain off fat; return the meat to the skillet. Stir in water and tomato paste; cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Season with pepper.

Spread the meat on tortillas, dot with feta and fold each tortilla in half.

Heat a large dry skillet over medium-high heat. Place two of the filled tortillas in the skillet and toast until heated through, about 1 minute per side. Repeat with the remaining filled tortillas. Cut each one into 4 wedges and serve hot.

Quick and tasty with a little adjustment
This is a quick and easy recipe, and along with a salad would make for a good weeknight dinner. The amount of ground beef that they use is very sparse however, and I will use at least two to three times as much the next time I make it.
