  2. Add the garlic, salt, , coriander, and cumin, to the meat. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the and cilantro, then cook for another 2 minutes. Remove the meat filling from the heat.
  3. WRAPPERS- used this video as tutorial, starting at 2:10 . In a small bowl, combine flour & water to make a paste. Fold tortillas into a triangle so that they make a pocket, use paste to seal. Put a meat in the pocket, leave enough room to seal top. Seal the top seam with paste.
