  • Cut tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Add tomatoes, finely chopped onions, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) sugar, 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) lime juice and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to a small bowl.
  • Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Set aside.

4
  • Reheat the same pan (from step 2) over medium-high.

  • Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-6 min.**
  • Carefully drain and discard excess fat.
  • Add remaining Mexican Seasoning.
  • Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 30 sec. Season with pepper, to taste.
Warm tortillas
5
  • Just before serving, wrap tortillas in paper towels. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, divide tortillas into two equal stacks, then wrap in paper towels.)
  • Microwave until tortillas are warm and flexible, 30 sec-1 min. (TIP: You can skip this step if you don't want to warm the tortillas!)
