My husband and his friend loved this took it to their work and they ate the entire dish. Will make this again. I make my own taco seasoning to cut down on the sodium. Submitted by:

Loved it. I used fat free soup, low sodium tomatoes, and Baked Tostitosto save sodium and calories and it still tasted great. Submitted by:

My husband and I both really loved this dish. I added a whole can of tomatoes (instead of just 1 cup) on accident and it still turned out great. Pretty decent nutritionals for a dinner. The portion is pretty hearty so it fills you up. Yum! Submitted by:

sounds good, but I'm skeptical whether it's good for you. Lots of sodium, calories, and carbs. Make my own taco seasoning, so that will lower the sodium. I'll try it. Submitted by:

Tastes good, I'm sure - but look at the nutritionals! This is a website dedicated to healthy living.
Just because you make it at home, doesn't make it healthy!

Not very healthy. tortilla chips, white rice, cream of mushroom soup, ewwwwww. Look at that sodium! One glance at the nutritional value....no fiber to speak of per serving, 16g of fat! I would not consider this a healthy dish at all. Submitted by:

I would make this with the boca crumbles to make it vegetarian and use the chile powder and cumin instead of the taco seasoning to reduce the sodium. It's on the menu for this week. Submitted by:

You can leave out the taco seasoning; Use chili powder, cayenne, and cumin to still get the taco flavor. I used to use taco seasoning all the time until I realized that cumin is what gives it's characteristic flavor; leave out the sodium, etc. of the taco seasoning and you won't miss it, I promise!

Those of you worried about sodium & processing...I am going to try this next week but with these changes:
-BROWN rice
-chilli powder vs taco seasoning
-multigrian organic chips or I may just use whole wheat tortillas! If you bake them a bit until crunchy
-fat free sour cream vs the mushroom sou

Too much sodium. This recipe contains nearly 50% of the daily RDA of sodium. Using reduced sodium ingredients should help. Submitted by:

I did this with turkey rather than beef. In recipes with lots of flavor, I've found you can tell the difference and it reduces fat by quite a bit. Submitted by:

I have very picky eaters at home, and they all loved this and asked for more. That makes any recipe incredible in my book! I used ground turkey for the meat, and substituted spanish rice. Also used fat free cheese, and lower sodium soup. Yummy! Submitted by:

Just got done with dinner and I will be making this dish again. I could not find the Mexican rice, so I used Spanish Rice instead. Also, next time I think I will leave out the tortilla chips and serve them on the side along with some shredded lettuce and non-fat sour cream. Submitted by:

My whole family really loved this. It was a little high in calories however, for the amount you get, so next time I will use Baked Scoops and ground turkey. I added fat-free sour cream at the table to tone down the spiciness. My kids added ketchup and loved it. Submitted by:
