  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 1 cup (250 mL) Old El Pasoᵀᴹ Thick N' Chunky Salsa (any variety)
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) low sodium ketchup
  • 1 to 2 tbsp (15 to 25 mL) packed brown sugar

  • Low fat sour cream, if desired
  • Shredded lettuce, if desired
  • Chopped tomato, if desired

  1. Cut beef into beef strips. (Beef is easier to cut if partially frozen, about 1 1/2 hours.)
  2. Heat large skillet or wok over high heat. Add oil; rotate skillet to coat side.
  3. Add beef; stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown; drain. Stir in salsa, ketchup, brown sugar and mustard. Cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until hot. Serve in tortillas with remaining ingredients.

Expert Tips

  • Flour tortillas are easier to fold and less likely to tear when they're warm.
  • Simply wrap tortillas in a clean dish towel or cover with paper towels, and microwave on High for 10 to 15 seconds or until just warm.
