What You Need

 corn tortillas (4 inch), warmed
cup  refried beans
cups  KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese

Make It

CUT foil and parchment paper into 24 (7x6-inch) pieces. Cook meat, in batches, in large skillet on medium-high heat 2 min. or until browned, stirring occasionally.

STACK 1 foil piece, 1 parchment piece and 1 tortilla. Repeat with remaining foil, parchment and tortillas to make a total of 24 stacks. Top with beans, meat and cheese; roll up tortillas, then wrap tightly with parchment and foil. Place in steamer filled with 1 inch of boiling water; cover.

COOK on medium-low heat 15 to 20 min. or until cheese is melted and tacos are heated through. Unwrap tacos. Serve with salsa.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Warm Tortillas
Microwave tortillas, in package, 1 min. or until warmed, turning once. Warming tortillas before filling and steaming will prevent them from breaking.
Where to Buy Cecina
Cecina is beef that has been salted, air dried, sundried or smoked. Look for it in the butcher section of larger Latin markets.
Make Ahead
Tacos can be assembled, wrapped in parchment and foil, and stored refrigerator for several hours before steaming as directed just before serving.
