"This is a great recipe out of my Weight Watchers "Take-Out Tonight!" cookbook. This also makes an excellent dip for veggies or baked tortillas. This had 6 points per serving on the old program, I also like to add in some 0 point things like salsa, pickled jalapenos and cilantro."

I will make these again and again! I have to admit to sneaking on some full fat sour cream but otherwise behaved

We really loved these tacos. I didn't have any taco seasoning so I used burrito seasoning. Adding the beans to the meat mixture added some great texture and flavor. We also had some ripe avocado so we added that. Thank you for a great new way to make tacos.

This taco recipe was REALLY fantastic! I thought it was going to be like any other taco recipe, but really, it was way better :) I love the beans added. And we used soft tacos so putting them in oven made them partly crisp, but I admit, I actually liked it that way. Believe it or not, the taste was changed, and for me, this was for the better! Made for a fantastic meal. Thanks for sharing.

Very good tacos. We did skip some of the items (olives) but also added salsa and cheese. A fun meal! Thanks for sharing!
