Loved this and love that it has some sneaked-in vegetables! Made this with some homemade tortillas and lots of cheese! Will definitely make this again!
We eat this all the time...love it. Thanks for posting, as it can be difficult to search for on the other network site. I've found the meat filling has become the new standard for regular tacos as well. Love the coriander flavor.
I took the liberty of making this recipe vegetarian and cutting it back to two servings. I used a half pkg. Vegetarian Mexican Burger, low fat cheese and vegetable stock. I placed 2 small whole wheat tortillas in baking dish coming up the edges so it formed a crust and because it was only two servings put all of the mixture in the dish topped with all the cheese. The tortillas were lovely & crisp. When I served it I served it with Belgian Endive Salad. It was a wonderful tasty dinner Thanks ~Bliss~ I will make it with regular burger another time.
