Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160ºF. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
Stir in water, tomato paste, brown sugar, vinegar, chili powder and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add spinach, beans and carrots; continue simmering 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through.
Spoon filling evenly in a row across center of each tortilla, leaving 1-1/2-inch border on right and left sides. Fold right and left sides of tortilla over filling. Fold bottom edge up over filling and roll up.
