  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 small corn or flour tortillas (5-6 inch diameter), warmed

Cooking in batches, place steaks in skillet (do not overcrowd) and cook 2 to 3 minutes for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.) Remove steaks from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with remaining steaks and oil.
  • 4. Spread bean mixture evenly on tortillas. Cut steaks into 4 pieces each and divide evenly among tortillas. Top beef with remaining beans and Toppings, as desired. Fold tortillas in half to serve. Yield: 4 servings.
