This was good, but I think next time I will use 1/2 can of beans. I couldn't taste much of anything but the beans. I added a little fat free sour cream on the top. Submitted by:

Great starter base.Tasted really Good, I added onion and low sod.taco seasoning and green chilies to the meat mix. For even more flavor.Topped with lettuce and tomato, fat free sour cream.

My first SP recipe I tried and it was delicious! I used "spicy" fat-free refried beans and probably closer to 1/2 cup of salsa. Tastes great as is, but I think I'm going to add some sliced jalepenos and lowfat sour cream on a new serving tomorrow. Add to that the ease of prep and I just loved it! Submitted by:

This was great!! Very yummy and so easy to make. I think next time I will use low fat cheese to help with the calorie content; I also used ground turkey instead of hamburger and Pace Picante Sauce. The family has already asked for this again! Thanks for posting! Submitted by:

It is very rare that I find a healthy, low cal, filling dish that all of my family enjoys. I added taco seasoning to the ground beef and sauteed onions. On the plate I loaded up shredded lettuce and tomatoes with no fat sour cream. Out of this world delicious! Submitted by:

This is similar to one of our all-time favorites, which it is now replacing. ;-) We couldn't even tell the shredded carrots was added, what a nice surprise tucked inside. The wheat tortillas were better than I expected. I figured 237.6 calories and 575 mg Sodium per serving. Submitted by:

I tweeked the recipe by adding spices to my ground beef before mixing in the refried beans. I also added a 1/2 cup of salsa instead of a 1/4 cup and use reduced fat cheddar cheese. Also served it with light sour cream on the side. Submitted by:

I've made this before and it tastes great and my family loves it. I've also made it with smooshed black beans instead of refried beans for less sodium and higher fiber. Submitted by:

Very quick and easy to make! My family put guacamole and sour cream on top to "de-dietize" it. I mixed real and low fat cheese, and they did not even notice. "A keeper" as we call it. Submitted by:
