  • 1 pound ground beef (80 percent lean)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest and 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 1 lime), plus wedges for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (from 2 cloves)
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/2 head red cabbage, shredded (3 cups)
  • 8 6-inch corn or flour tortillas, toasted
  • Sliced avocado, sour cream, and pickled jalapenos, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, mix beef with lime juice and zest, pepper flakes, garlic, and 1 teaspoon salt. Heat a large nonstick skillet over high. Add beef mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 7 minutes. Add cabbage and season with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is wilted, 2 to 4 minutes more.

  2. Fill tortillas with beef mixture. Serve with accompaniments and lime wedges.
