Top Review by megs_

Perfection! This tasted to me, JUST like Taco Bell's, except healthier. I used a taco seasoning packet in place of the seasoning, fat free beans, and omitted the onions/olives. With the beans I mixed in a little cumin, salt & pepper, and chili powder to give them a little extra kick. The tomatoes really sold me on this, that's my favorite part of Taco Bell's version. I scaled the recipe down to one, and it was easy to do. Watch the tortillas in the broiler - they crisp faster than you would think! GREAT recipe - thanks for sharing!!
