I tried this recipe as a part of the Cooking Light Diet, it is a very popular recipe on the Facebook support group for people who subscribe to the diet. EVERYONE in my house liked this recipe! The seasoning for the beef is beyond delicious and will be my go-to seasoning for taco meat from now on. One taco is enough--I normally eat two--but the teens in my house ate several.
My teen isn't a big fan of the beef so I heat up some black beans for her then hubby and I split the beef - one double taco and one soft taco. Very tasty. I used half a fairly large jalapeno and it wasn't too spicy at all. Next time I'll use the whole pepper.
This was a hit in my house!
These were sensational! I've never had them at TB, but my whole family raved about these! This is the way I'll make tacos from now on!
Great idea. Pretty simple. I loved that the jalapeno wasn't hot! I agree, beans over powered the meat. It was fun though.
I used my own homemade taco seasoning but otherwise followed the recipe. Tasty - and very filling - but for me the refried beans kind of overshadowed the meat. I would make these again just for the technique (brilliant! I hate when the crunchy shells completely fall apart with the first bite), but I might cut back on the beans or even omit them altogether and just use the melted cheese alone as the "glue."
Great recipe! You could of course just do the tortilla bean cheese broiling step and just make tacos like you always do. Awesome idea! And a lot healthier than the crunch wrap supreme ;-)
