    I love this idea, if we are out of beef. Eggplants contain trace amount of Vitamin A, C, folacin, has high levels of antioxidant, are low in sodium & calories-less the 40 Eggplant delivers 21.4 mg of calcium,13.0 mg of magnesium, 248 mg of potassium, 22 mg of phosphorus & 2.5 grams of fiber(skin) - 5/12/10

    We tried this 'cause an alternative to beef tacos appealed to me--more filling for fewer calories! Bill cooked the veggies WITHOUT the tomato, to keep the filling from getting watery, and used a small fresh jalapeno. We used fresh-picked tomatoes from the garden, with cilantro, as a topping. Yummo!! - 8/20/10

    I thought it was tasty. I only used 1 tablespoon of olive oil though. - 6/22/08

    I liked this but would have liked a bit more eggplant. I didn't have black beans so used kidney beans; didn't have the tomatoes with chilis so used plain; didn't have taco seasoning so used ground chipoltes, cumin and oregano. Poured it over a corn tortillo topped with lettuce and a little salsa. - 2/21/08

    I loved this. My kids found it too spicy, so I'd probably make it without the chilis. Very yummy. - 2/6/08
