  • 4 oz steak
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 jalapeno diced
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 6 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 c cheese cheddar or mix spicy jack and cheddar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cilantro
  • pinch of salt and pepper cayenne optional
  • olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 425, grease a muffin pan with cooking spray.
  • Add steak, seasonings and a drizzle of olive oil to a food processor or chop small by hand and mix well so all pieces are coated.
  • Heat a pan on the stovetop. Add diced steak and vegetables, cook for about 3-5 minutes or until steak is no longer pink.
  • Trim tortillas down to a 4" circle. Can use a glass upside down and cut around to create small circular pieces that will fit snugly when pressed into your muffin pan holes.
  • Fill cups with mixture. Layer with steak mixture, then shredded cheese, more steak, more cheese until it reaches top of tortilla but not overflowing.
  • Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
