Betty's Success Tip
In the (unlikely!) event there is any beef mixture left, bring it home and refrigerate it for lunch the next day. Reheat the beef mixture, wrap in a flour tortilla and serve with fresh toppings.
Ingredient Substitution
If ripe avocados aren't available, take along two containers of purchased guacamole instead.
