Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

good recipe but the calorie count listed is only for 2oz of beef instead of 4oz.
The true calorie count would be 400.4
I will make it again.

I like it spicier so I seasoned the meat with chili powder and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes instead of the garlic and onion powder. Doesn't have the sodium of taco seasoning but more of a taco flavor. Submitted by:

The recipe says one serving. The nutritional info calculated only accounts for 2 ounces of beef, not the whole 4 ounces (which is a 1/4 pound). The recipe as written above is actually 400 calories if you use the whole 1/4 pound of lean beef. Submitted by:

you may want to check the calorie count for this. i checked using the recipe calculator on this site and just the bean and meat mix comes out to 378 cal thats more than what the entire recipe is supposed to be. just wanted everyone to know. its still good i would just half the meat mix.

Good basic recipe--Thanks for posting. I'm using it in my meal (and grocery shopping) plan for today. I will probably use a fresh onion and chili type seasonings and use less cheese and add some avocado if I can find a good one, so my ending nutritional numbers may vary a little. Submitted by:

Not sure why people are complaining about 315 calories being a lot - I think that's great for a meal! You could eat four meals a day at 315 calories and be at only 1260 which would be low-range for almost everyone!

Great recipe, I'll be trying it soon.

I added fat free sour cream on top. I also like ground turkey, but used beef first. Submitted by:

Sounds good, since most of the taco salads in the restaurants are really fattening. Submitted by:

Ground turkey would lower the fat and calorie count on this dish. Submitted by:

Very filling, but I could make a better tasting taco salad off the top of my head, for fewer calories. But still good. I don't really like the spice combo of fresh garlic and onion powder, and would suggest substituting taco seasoning. Submitted by:

Does it really have THAT many calories? I guess I would cut the meat down a little for mine. :) Submitted by:
