Trying to sneak some veggies into my kids' diets, I came up with this and it was a big hit! Trying to sneak some veggies into my kids' diets, I came up with this and it was a big hit!
Number of Servings: 13


    2 grilled boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    12 baby carrots (any carrots will do, this is what I had on hand)
    1 cup Fat Free Refried Beans
    1/2 cup salsa (or to taste)
    3 tbsp Sour Cream (can certainly used light/fat free)
    Seasoning to taste (salt, pepper, chili powder, and cumin are my favorites for this)
    13 Soft Taco Shells
    1/2 cup Reduced Fat Shredded Cheese of choice
    Cooking Spray


In a food processor, combine chicken, carrots, refried beans, salsa, sour cream, and seasoning. Process until desired texture (my daughter wanted it super smooth, so that's what we did)

Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into each tortilla, sprinkle on a pinch of cheese, and "squish" gently until it looks like a taco. Spray a pan or griddle with cooking spray and brown tacos on both sides.

Can serve with salsa or fat free sour cream if desired. My husband and I had 3 each, a light 411 calories for dinner, and my picky daughter willingly ate refried beans AND carrots! Double win. :-)

Serving Size: Makes 13 tacos.

Number of Servings: 13
