    Not sure why people are complaining about 315 calories being a lot - I think that's great for a meal! You could eat four meals a day at 315 calories and be at only 1260 which would be low-range for almost everyone!

    Great recipe, I'll be trying it soon.

    Ground turkey would lower the fat and calorie count on this dish. - 2/8/09

    Very filling, but I could make a better tasting taco salad off the top of my head, for fewer calories. But still good. I don't really like the spice combo of fresh garlic and onion powder, and would suggest substituting taco seasoning. - 8/14/07
