I am looking for quick recipes and this looks good! How many tortillas do you get per packet?

Also, do you include the cumin and chili powder with the mince mixture? Or does that go in with the avos to make guacomole?

Hi Sherrin

You add the spices once the mince is browned.

There are 6 tortillas in a packet so each person get two quarters in our home.
