Any way you prepare it, today's recipe makes short work out of dinner tonight; it contains about 322 calories per serving when prepared with a beef filling.

Thank you to all Recipe-a-Day members who took the time to send in a recipe. We're just sorry we won't have an opportunity to publish them all! Heat dressing and lime juice in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Add meat and cook for 2 or 3 minutes, then remove meat from skillet and reserve. In the same skillet, sauté the onion and pepper slices for 1 or 2 minutes. Return meat to the skillet and add chopped tomato and cilantro. Continue to cook for 1 or 2 minutes.

Warm tortillas as directed on the package.

Serve meat mixture sizzling hot from the pan, garnished with grated cheese and salsa and rolled up in the warm tortillas.
