This was tasty indeed. I also used a poblano pepper instead of the green. I can see being creative with this dish. I'm not a big fan of can soup in my dishes, but this was ok, next time I think I will just use some hot enchilada sauce. The meat mixture was so good. I might add some pickled jalapenos to it. What about black olives. You just need to make sure that there are no extra points. Let your imagination go wild. I also added some chopped cilantro on top. Thanks for a great recipe.
After some tweaking, this WW dish tasted anything but diet-like! We are serious TexMex food eaters so more zip was mandatory. First, I subbed chopped poblano for the bell pepper. Then I used 1/2 can of the soup and 5 ounces of green enchilada sauce + hot taco seasoning mix. To get the creaminess back, I used FF half-and-half instead of skim milk. After I had stuffed the tortillas, I _deglazed_ the pan with the soup mixture before pouring over the tacos. We loved this dish but I have planned more changes when I make it again; the filling is loose so adding the cheese with the meat before rolling would give a better texture. Not enough sauce for us - will increase the soup/enchilada sauce/milk amounts, adjusting WW points accordingly. Thanks for a great recipe for a WW meal that suits the non-dieter as well.
I took the advice from another review and used a poblano pepper just to add a little heat. I also added fresh cilantro. Even though I used 90/10 ground beef, these are still packed with flavor. Even the kids enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing! We'll make again.
