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.

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.

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.

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.

BAKE for 30 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.

Cook's Tip: To make beef easier to slice, freeze for 15 minutes and then slice.
