We really loved these easy and healthy tacos after I doctored them up a bit. I made the recipe as written, using 2 TBSP. cilantro instead of 1 TBSP. After cooking on low for 5 hours, I tasted it and found that it was quite bland for our tastes. I added some garlic salt, cumin, sugar, black pepper, additonal salt, and some Tex-Mex Spice Mix #143458 , to taste. After adding the above, I tasted it again and liked it a lot (so did my family). I served this in corn tortillas and topped it with the sour cream sauce, shredded cabbage, chopped tomatoes, and 4-cheese blend Mexican cheese. Thank you for sharing this quick, easy and healthy recipe. *Made for 2010 Spring PAC*
