Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef

  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tsp. onion powder

  • 2 tsp. garlic powder

  • 2 c. sharp cheddar cheese

  • 2 large soft flour tortillas

  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped

  • ¼ c. ketchup

  • ¼ c. real bacon bits, or chopped bacon

  • vegetable oil for brushing

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • red crushed pepper flakes for sprinkling

Directions

  • In a large skillet on medium high heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onions and cook for about 5-7 minutes until translucent. Add the beef and break it up with a wooden spoon or spatula. Cook the beef and onions together, for about 10 minutes, or until the beef is thoroughly cooked.
  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees: As the beef is cooked add the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, bacon bits, salt and pepper, garlic and onion powder and stir until all is incorporated and allow to simmer on low heat for 5-7 minutes.
  • On a large baking sheet, place the tortillas on top.
  • Take half of the burger mixture and spread it evenly on one half of the tortilla shells.
  • Sprinkle about 1 cup of the cheese, and flip the other half on top of the burger mixture.
  • Brush the top with vegetable or canola oil and sprinkle with red crushed pepper flakes.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until the tortilla shell becomes nice and crisp and the cheese is bubbly. Let rest, for about 5 minutes before slicing triangles.
