    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 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

    I thought it was really good. I made it into a soft taco. I had one & it was very filling, and I didn't miss the meat at all! - 5/8/12

    This was a great base recipe. I used a whole can of beans, a whole eggplant and added some more veggies and it was delicious with some reduced fat shredded cheese on crispy corn tortillas. - 9/16/11

    It was different, but good. My husband said he missed the meat in the taco, but that it tasted good. - 1/26/10

  • I like this idea, I ahve a teen who dose not touch meat which actually started me on the adventure to a better diet for all. I use tons of black beans in things from lazzana to omlets...and egg plant is a stable here. I cook meat for the others like maybe 2 times a month and no one seems to miss it. - 6/16/11
