Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

For just 2 people, I reduced the beef to 1/2 pound, added chopped onion to the beef for additional flavor and lots of chili powder. Also, I only used 3 flour tortillas.This is such an easy and tasty dish. Yum!
