I used to let asleep instead of a taco shell. It will save you carbs and calories! Submitted by:

Use small corn tortillas, fix two of these, not bad on calories at all, or use ground turkey.. low fat cheese is fine. Lettuce instead of the tortilla falls apart in your hands, silly to be afraid of a small size corn tortilla....... Submitted by:

I use ground turkey and I do not use taco seasoning mix I use salt pepper and chili powder I also just make a salad out of it with mostly greens but it is all good everyone does their own thing here Submitted by:

I don't think the nutrition value is correct for this recipe. The breakdown is for poultry seasoning instead of taco seasoning which is very high sodium content. Might want to check. Submitted by:

i use half as much meat and add a peeled and chopped potato to the water salt and pepper very tasty! Submitted by:

I use Maria and Ricardo's Tortilla Factory Fiber Rich Whole Wheat Tortillas instead. Only 45 calories each and very filling! And raw sweet onions; when Vidalias are in season those are the best. I've also used th3e Smart Ground tofu crumble Mexican in place of ground beef. Submitted by:

We also add a can of fat-free refried beans to the meat (after browning and seasoning). Gives it more substance without lots of extra calories. Also makes more tacos for bigger families. Submitted by:

This recipe was pretty good, but I am a little confused by the calorie count. When I read the info on the taco shell and taco seasoning package, the prepared taco only had 250ish calories per serving. That is alot less then this recipe. Submitted by:

This pretty much how I always made my beef tacos + some chili powder to spice it up, some salsa, low fat sour cream & just a little guacamole. Submitted by:

I use my own taco seasoning mix as I have high blood pressure & need to watch my sodium intake. Other than that it looks good! katilyn1 Submitted by:

I like to add a dallop of fat-free yogurt or sour cream too...mmmm so good! Submitted by:

This recipe is similar to what I am use to making but I use lean meat. I season the meat myself (onion powder and garlic powder) since taco seasoning has too much sodium. Once I put the beef, cheese, tomato and lettuce on the taco shell, I top it off with some salsa. Great recipe! Submitted by:
