My nephew and I loved making this! He loved it and he is a picky eater. I will definitely make these again!!

This is great for left over roast!! My family loved it!!

This had a good flavor. It came together very easily.

Very good! Also added sliced avocado to the tortillas. Excellent way to use leftover steak! I think it would be good with any kind of potato.

This is really good! I didn't have leftover beef so I cut a 12 ounce steak into cubes and cooked it along with the sweet potatoes and onions. Really delicious and unusual.
