This is a great low-carb alternative to your standard homemade tacos. I love Mexican food and wasn't willing to part with tacos after starting my low-carb diet. This always satisfies my craving.

It doesn't matter if you eat this because you follow a low-carb diet or you are simply too lazy to make tortillas (who, me?). Just eat it! As the submitter writes, this does satisfy a craving, but she is humble. This is more than a settlement for tacos. This is a great dish. No need to change a thing. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Low fat and low carbs are different things. The ratio of Fat to Saturated Fat is high and this is not a lowfat recipe by any means. Read More

Delicious! I used a taco seasoning recipe from this site and did everything else as instructed except I used fresh jalapeños because I didn't have canned. I was wondering if I was supposed to drain the meat and decided not to since the recipe didn't say to and it was so good. Thank you I will be making this again for sure. Read More

I hate it when people completely change a recipe. However, after making this several time I felt the meat was a little bland. Now I add 1 can of Rotel tomatoes with green chiles to give it more flavor and a little more kick. This is a quick easy meal your family will love! Read More

For those who find this too much to make, because they live alone etc. There is a adjustment button on the same line as the Ingredients header on the right hand side. It looks like a pie with divisions. Next to it is a button that tells you the nutritional breakdown. Read More

Pretty good! I missed the chips or taco shells but since I AM doing low carb- that's to be expected- This is a super idea! I wouldn't have thought of this idea and it's great to have something besides chicken (Even my husband who is not on a low carb diet enjoyed it!)!! Read More

You don't need to be watching your carbs to indulge in this recipe. So easy to make with ingredients on hand and eat right out of a bowl. A great blend of overall flavors. Read More

Looks good can't wait to try. Question: Why are there black olives in the picture but none in the ingredients? Read More

My husband loved loved loved ths meal. I actually put the meat mixture in cheddar taco shells (the kind that stand up with a flat bottom). I also did not add the peppers since we both have sensitive tummies. Still tasted great!!! Read More
