Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I, too, brown then boil and rinse the meat to de-fat it. The other suggestion I like is putting this on a lettuce leaf -- endive, romaine. It is delicious.
Even tastier if you drain off the fat from the browned meat and add an equivalent amount of beef stock.
tasty and lower in sodium
I skip the taco seasoning packet and add my own spices to avoid all the salt.
I used ground round, usually organic, or buffalo meat. I also use my own spices and skip the salty seasoning mix.
It's a decent recipe. I use bok choi leaves as my taco shells and use a low sodium enchilada sauce instead of water for more flavor.
Tacos are my quick go to meal. Super easy. Due to salt restrictions, I season with chile powder, cumin & garlic, taco seasoning packets too much salt & $$$.
I would like to make my own seasoning..the packaged stuff is so full of sodium.
Good old tacos.. I make mine in a bowl like a taco salad... use half the meat, low fat cheese and take the shell crunch it up on top
Use salsa on top as well
instead of using packaged seasoning, create your own taco seasoning; less sodium and no additives
