This sandwich was "okay", but I'm not sure I would have it again. I'm not sure how low-cal this sandwich really is according to the calorie marks in the nutrition facts, especially considering that the cream cheese & taco sauce arent even included. The flavors of the sandwich ingredients didnt really go with the plain wheat bread in my humble opinion. I think I would have preferred this in some sort of salad arrangement rather than on wheat bread, or maybe I would just have preferred it on some other kind of bread. Maybe if Id toasted my bread I may have enjoyed it more than if I just did it as stated. I also think that it might be better to mix the taco sauce into the cream cheese, instead of just drizzling it over. Overall it wasnt bad, but I just feel like it was missing something. Thanks for the idea though. I will play around with this in the future to suit my tastes.
