    Use a leaf of lettuce instead of the taco shell. You retain the crisp effect and the carbs are so reduced that you can have several. - 6/29/09

    I always boil and rinse my hamburger meat after browning for recipes like tacos or spaghetti sauce etc. This makes the hamburger 97% lean and still retains all of the nutrients. This works for all hamburger. The flavor given up by the fat is more than made up with the seasonings. Bon Appetito! - 7/10/09

    It's really easy to make tacos w/out taco seasoning---you just need a little chili powder, cumin and maybe coriander powder, some tomato sauce, diced onions and maybe garlic or peppers. I make 'em all the time using ground turkey. Leftovers make a great salad! - 3/23/07

    any taco meat that I make, I add some frozen corn & pinto or red beans to - it gives it more flavor & texture, cuts down the calories and fills you up with more fiber - 6/28/08
