    This receipe can be modified, try black beans and eliminate the mean. Black beans have protien, and dont use sour cream use fat free greek yogurt which is nice an thick and taste great. Use romaine lettuce instead of iceburg, add cliantro, fresh salsa add avocado as well. Deduct the chips. - 4/2/09

    The recipe sets up the idea and then you can customize to your taste. I exchanged the iceberg for romaine; the sour cream for non fat yogurt; toasted a corn tortilla instead of chips. it was so quick and delicious - 4/29/09

    This was so very good. I try to eat 5 small meals a day so I freezed it in 10 small baggies and it freezes very well. I just put it over a small bed of lettuce and no chips. It doesn't need them...it's so flavorful. - 1/13/10

    I really enjoyed this! The sweet corn is something I wouldn't have thought of. I finally felt like I was eating "real" food, but without having to cheat. I even added this to my Favorite foods in my Nutrition menu! - 2/10/09

    Sounds delicious but will use a lot more lettuce and tomatoes to make it more filling without a lot of extra calories. Thanks!! - 1/4/09
