    This was really good - I actually ditched the tortilla nad just had everything on lettuce. I made the taco seasoning to avoid all the sodium - there is a great homemade recipe on SP and you usually have all the spices already in the house. - 2/11/10

    This is so, so good!!! I am amazed something so easy and simple to prepare is this delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

    JENNMC77 - I rinsed and drained the beans, not the tomatoes, and I used the full 3/4 C of water. I let it simmer until the liquids boiled off to the consistency I like for tacos.

    Very easy & very tasty, but I found the liquid to be way too much. I even used 2/3 cup instead of the 3/4 and partially drained the beans & tomatoes, but it was still too liquidy & never got to the consistency I typically like for tacos. I'll definitely make again but I'll cut the water way down. - 5/6/09

    This was super yummy! I never thought to put diced tomatoes right in with the meat. I always just got frustrated when they would fall off the top!! - 2/22/10

    This was sooo good! I made it tonight for my boyfriend and I. We couldn't find the tacos that were on the list - maybe they don't sell them in Canada? And I couldn't find the required diced tomatoes, so I just bought regular diced and added in oregano, basil, and garlic. Overall, super delicious! :D - 4/7/10

    Great meal. Quick & easy just as its titled. I made my own taco seasoning to cut back on sodium. We like spice so I also added red pepper flakes & a few dashes of hot sauce. Used habanero cheese & added jalapeņos to our taco. PERFECT!! Will make again. - 1/30/12

    I'm gonna try this, but maybe with Rotel, as basil & oregano are typically Italian seasonings - not Mexican. Sounds super yummy, though...can't wait to try it! - 10/12/11

    very tasty. as others said way too much liquid. i drained my beans and rinsed, then didn't use most of the liquid from the tomatoes and the 3/4 cup water was too much. otherwise tasty. i added chopped cilantro and chopped avocados. will use leftovers as salad tonight. - 8/2/11

    I've made my turkey tacos similar for years (never thought about adding black beans though, and I keep those on hand!), and I also don't use canned tomatoes. Yes, I miss them, but it makes my feet & ankles swell. I use frozen onion, celery, bell pepper cooked with the meat with cumin & chili powder. - 6/8/11

    SO GOOD!! I also drained and rinsed the beans, and used low sodium taco seasoning. Tacos are my favorite, so I'm very happy to have found this recipe! This will definitely be a regular at our house! - 3/1/11

    I have been making my tacos very similiar to yours & they are fantastic! I used actual tomatoes and hot salsa, I use whole grain tortillas. Everyone loves them, they are better than the old ones I used to make w/fried beef. - 3/1/11

    These Soft Taco's were absolutely delicious! The only change I made was to make my own low sodium Taco Seasoning from a recipe on this site. My entire family loved these Taco's. Thank you so much for sharing. - 2/26/11

    So yummy! I skipped the tortilla and just had it on a bed of spinach & salad mix (like a taco salad) and I really enjoyed it. I also added a little hot sauce to the mixture to spice it up a bit. Will definitely make this again! - 1/26/11

    I loved this recipe and so did my daughter. I couldn't get the ground turkey past my finicky son though and I am sure my hubby would not have tried it. I did make it up and will freeze the left overs for lunches!!! Thanks for the great recipe! - 1/20/09
