Can this be done in the oven or on stove top, directions please, I don't have a grill anymore.

I would say cook it the same way just on the stove top not the grill. A skillet can be used on either.

I did this on my stovetop. I had browned up 2lbs of ground beef & onions for another dish and then saved back the 1lb. of extra and froze it for another dish & time. When I saw this recipe, I took out my already browned meat & onions, added it ( still frozen ) to my skillet with the chili powder & salsa and covered the skillet and just let it cook on medium heat until it was all heated through. Then I added the peppers and after a couple of minutes of warming them, started assembling the tortillas. It turned out great and my family said so too. It cut the prep and cooking time in half and was easy. We had them with lettuce, more salsa, and sour cream.
