    We enjoyed this recipe. It's easy to make and flavorful. I used a 15 oz. can of black beans. We served it with sour cream and fresh salsa. My son liked the filling without tortillas. Will make again.

    I found this in Parade several years ago and it is my go to taco recipe. We add guacamole and sour cream but it still seems good for you and filling! It makes enough for 2 of us to eat for at least 2 days. Oh and try it on low carb tortillas.

    I'm made this recipe several times. My family and I love it! It's pretty rare when I make something this healthy and my son loves it but this is one of his favorites. So flavorful it doesn't seem healthy and sooo easy to prepare!

Now I post all recipes I've tried or would like to try. I'm actually making it my goal to try almost all the recipes I've posted as soon as I can. I love food and I love to eat and try different recipes. My favorite course is dessert. I love sweets! This leads me to that I did have Gastric Bypass surgery on July 25th 2008. On that note I love baking and cooking a priceless gift passed down from my grammy who I dearly loved and miss deeply. My grammy passed away 1/15/07. She was a wonderful cook and baker and taught me many things and the most valueable things was how to be a wonderful cook and baker like her. I really enjoy searching for new recipes especially here on Zaar. I'm always finding and adding to my cookbook new and exciting recipes. I also enjoy posting recipes here on Zaar as well.

I live in Elmira, New York where famous writer Mark Twain did some of his writing and he once lived. I have&nbsp;1 cats Samantha and&nbsp;1 dog our newest member MOO MOO (my nieces dog) who are my children as I do not have any human children of my own.
