   ~----------------- Heat beef and refried beans
   separately.  Place about 1/4 cup of the beef on the
   center of each tortilla.  Spoon about 2 T of the beans
   onto the beef. Top with 1/4 cup of the lettuce and
   about 2 T each of tomatoes and cheese. Fold one end of
   the tortilla up about 1 inch over filling; fold right
   and left sides over folded end, overlapping.  Fold
   down remaining end, and serve. REFRIED BEANS: Heat
   lard in 10-inch skillet over medium heat until hot.
   Add pinto beans; cook for 5 minutes, stirring
   occasionally. Mash beans; stir in remaining
   ingredients. Add oil to skillet if necessary; cook and
   stir until smooth paste forms, about 5 minutes.
   Garnish with shredded cheese, if desired.
