Curry Beef Wraps

Inspired by our English friend Toni, this ground beef dish is a winner. I have found that 1/2 pound of ground beef per person is a good gauge. Temper the seasonings to your own taste; use these as a guideline.

For each pound of ground beef use:

1 medium clove of garlic, minced
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin seed
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon beef bouillon powder
1/2 - 1 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon citrus & pepper seasoning
1/2 can condensed tomato soup

sliced or diced tomato, cucumber, green, red and/or yellow peppers
shredded lettuce
grated cheese
Plain yogurt, ranch dressing or sour cream if desired
2 whole wheat tortillas per person

Scramble fry ground beef in large skillet. Add garlic, onion and spices and cook until meat is browned through. Drain off fat, then add tomato soup. Simmer until meat filling is thick, liquids having been reduced/ boiled away.

Meanwhile, prepare vegetables and cheese. Putting each topping in its own dish is a nice way for everyone to add what they like to their wrap.

15 minutes before serving, wrap tortillas in foil and warm in 350*F oven.

Pass the meat filling and toppings. Roll up the wraps to enjoy.
