Ingredients

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Heat juice in medium, microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute or until warm. Dissolve bouillon in warm juice. Pour into large bowl. Stir in onion, garlic and red pepper flakes.

Step 3

Add beef to marinade. Massage the marinade with your hands into each slice of beef. Cover; refrigerate for 1 hour. Drain marinade, reserving meat and onion.

Step 4

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef in single layer for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until browned. Repeat with remaining slices of beef and onion. Finely chop cooked meat; place in a large bowl with onion. Mix in diced green chiles.

Step 5

Place 2 rounded tablespoons beef mixture in center of each wrapper. Fold edge over filling to form a half circle. Crimp edges to seal. Place on baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg.

Step 6

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
