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 tortillas (8 inches), preferably whole-wheat
  • 1/3 cup (2 ounces) crumbled feta cheese


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.
