Very Good 4.9/5
(9 ratings)

This is a substantial Mexican meal that tastes wonderful when served with a homemade fresh salsa and corn warmed tortillas. I have attempted to trim fat and calories by substituting ground turkey for the original ground beef.

I got this recipe off of recipezaar and it is awesome! I made a few changes from the original recipe. I excluded the 2T of Olive oil, and added more diced tomatoes, and used egg beaters instead of an egg.
