Tacos in a Bag Redo

Submitted by: 2NDCHANCEWITHEY

Introduction

Every time I would go to a hockey game or a fair I would find these amazing Tacos in a Bag. I loved them however I wanted to find a better way to make them. I have no idea how many calories were in the original however this one is not too bad. ( that does not mean it is wonderful either.

Ingredients

    Ground Beef or Turkey or Chicken 5 pounds. ( I had 5.81 pounds when I made this)
    3 small onions diced
    1/2 pepper, bell your choice diced

    2.5 tsp Fiesta Lime seasoning mix (Mrs. Dash) (Any fajita mix will work but Mrs. Dash is salt free)
    2 tbsp Garlic Powder
    3 cups black beans (please try to use dried beans that you cook your self. They taste so much better then the canned stuff however if you use canned RINSE RINSE RINSE and use 2 cans)
    Lettuce, Tomato, Salsa, Cheese, Greek Yogurt (All of these items are not included in the nutritional values) If you have not tried to sub. Greek Yogurt for Sour Cream it is amazing (and I HATE yogurt)

  • Thank you for the re-do! And I agree with you about the Greek yogurt. Who would have known! Not only do I get to feel like I'm eating sour cream (definitely tastes like it!), but I know it's healthy, so how can you beat it! - 10/14/13
