      I am giving this 5 stars for several reasons (1) my husband, teenage son, and college-aged daughter all loved it and went back for seconds. That right there is hard to find! I'd call THAT a rave review! (2) Easy to prepare with many common ingredients I often keep on hand. I substituted flour tortillas, but think corn tortillas might have actually been better. (3) Low fat ingredients = low WW PointsPlus value! Everything in this recipe (other than tortillas) can be a "filling food" making this an excellent WW meal! (4) Huge servings! In inadvertently forgot to cook a vegetable making this the only thing on our plates. It was plenty to fill my belly. (5) Great and versatile flavor. Others have talked about adding more taco seasoning but I thought it was perfect as is. It is easy enough to top with hot salsa if you want to add some heat. I served without extra toppings, but I think the addition of cilantro (as suggested), some baked tortilla ships, salsa, and black olives would really take this to a higher level.

      Sadly, my husband and kids ate all of it at dinner tonight so no leftovers for me. I will definately make this again as my husband said "This one is a keeper!" Thanks for sharing!

      Absolutely great! I used ground turkey, flour tortillas, no jalapenos and salsa instead of tomatoes...ridiculously good. My family of 5 loved it and said this was a keeper for sure. Thank you so much for a new, much loved, recipe!
