      I made this for a family couples gathering. It was well received and no one knew it was WW friendly. It was not spicy enough for me or my hubby...but the 'gringos' in the crowd liked it just fine. I would add some cheese and a bit more spice next time....but it was tasty and I would make it agian.

      I made this and used 12ozs of groung turkey breast, used 6 ozs mexican conrbread mix and pinto beans not black beans. Still it was 4 points. very good. I also added 2 Tbs Light Sour Cream, 1/8 cup 2% cheese and 5 black olives cut up on each serving. This added 3 pts for a total of 7 points I will make over and over.

      I love this stuff! I used extra lean ground beef instead of the soy crumbles and omitted the black beans. I've made this several times and with the addition of some shredded cheddar cheese (I used Kraft 2%), this recipe gets 5 stars!
