Olice oil cooking spray
Ground sirloin or extra lean ground beef (170g) 6oz
Salt 1/4 tsp
Pepper 1/8 tsp
Yellow onion (small diced) 1/4 cup
Red Pepper (small diced) 1/4 cup
Garlic (minced) 2 tsp
Tomato (small diced) 1/4 cup
BBQ Sauce (sugar free if possible) 2 tbsp
Whole wheat tortilla 1
Pineapple (chopped) 1/4 cup
Aged white cheddar (grated) 1/2 cup
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Preheat a non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Lightly coat with spray, add the ground meat and season with salt and pepper. Saute the beef until lightly browned and cooked all the way through. Add the onions, peppers and garlic and saute for 1 minute more. Add the tomato and BBQ sauce, stir until combined and remove from heat. Lightly coat a baking sheet with spray and place the tortilla shell on the tray. Spread the beef and vegetable mixture evenly on the shell, leaving the outside half inch for the crust. Top with the pineapple and cheese and then place in the oven. Bake until cheese is melted and shell is nicely toasted (about 10 minutes).
