      This was super quick and easy to make, so it was perfect for a busy weeknight dinner. I doubled the spices for the meat and also added some cumin and black pepper. Instead of the kidney beans, I used refried beans to which I added some salsa. I put the refried beans on the tortilla first, followed by the meat mixture, the vegetables, 4-cheese Mexican blend, sour cream and taco sauce...yum! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

      I made this with black beans since we like them better and added cilantro and squeezed lemon juice right on top right before serving. Outstanding! Made for Super Bowl 2013 win by Maryland Jim....

      To make this more diabetic friendly I used veggie crumbles in place of the beef and added a good dose of Mexican Seasoning. No kidney beans on hand so I used black beans. All else was pretty much as ask with fat free sour cream and spicy salsa. Lovely on a hot summer evening. Made for ZWT8.
