Place a burrito sized tortilla on a plate and place about a 1/2 cup of the ground beef mixture onto the center. I divide the beef mixture into six equal portions. Top with a little cheese and lettuce. You can substitute or add other veggies as well.

Fold in the left and right side of the tortilla over the filling, holding in place with your fingers. Then fold in the top and bottom sides of the tortilla over the filling (like an envelope) and place seam side down in greased 9 x 13 oven safe dish.
