EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

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.

If ripe avocados aren't available, take along two containers of purchased guacamole instead.
