I came across this recipe in my newest issue of Saveur and thought it looked easy enough for a week night. I made mine with ground turkey instead of beef and then placed them into warm spelt tortillas with some shredded mozzarella. The only issue I had with the recipe was the amount of ground cloves. The recipe called for 1/2 teaspoon, which I thought sounded like too much and against my better judgement that is what I put in. Unless you absolutely love the flavor of cloves, I would suggest using only a 1/4 of a teaspoon. Cloves are so strong and half of the amount would be plenty. The recipe I post will have only a 1/4 teaspoon.
