I had some leftover corned beef and was looking for different ideas.. This was delicious! I used red onion (only because I didn't have any green) Instead of taco sauce, I used horseradish which really complimented the corned beef. Will definitely make these again! Great idea!

These were good tacos. I used whole wheat tortillas, added cilantro, and used nonfat sour cream instead of the cheese. The only thing I would caution on is not overfilling these with the meat, as the saltiness overpowers the other ingredients. Thanks, cookiedog!

Outstanding...what a great idea...something different for a party or to do with your leftovers instead of reuben sandwiches. This would also be a good alternative to traditional corned beef and cabbage if some of your guests are not "meat" people because they could use alternative fillings. Fish tacos with cabbage are always yummy. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
