Questions & Replies

  1. How many free style points?


  1. I am giving this 5 stars for several reasons (1) my husband, teenage son, and college-aged daughter all loved it and went back for seconds. That right there is hard to find! I'd call THAT a rave review! (2) Easy to prepare with many common ingredients I often keep on hand. I substituted flour tortillas, but think corn tortillas might have actually been better. (3) Low fat ingredients = low WW PointsPlus value! Everything in this recipe (other than tortillas) can be a "filling food" making this an excellent WW meal! (4) Huge servings! In inadvertently forgot to cook a vegetable making this the only thing on our plates. It was plenty to fill my belly. (5) Great and versatile flavor. Others have talked about adding more taco seasoning but I thought it was perfect as is. It is easy enough to top with hot salsa if you want to add some heat. I served without extra toppings, but I think the addition of cilantro (as suggested), some baked tortilla ships, salsa, and black olives would really take this to a higher level.<br/><br/>Sadly, my husband and kids ate all of it at dinner tonight so no leftovers for me. I will definately make this again as my husband said "This one is a keeper!" Thanks for sharing!
  2. Absolutely great! I used ground turkey, flour tortillas, no jalapenos and salsa instead of tomatoes...ridiculously good. My family of 5 loved it and said this was a keeper for sure. Thank you so much for a new, much loved, recipe!
  3. This is actually 9 points plus per serving.
  4. This casserole tastes great! Made it exactly as instructed. Excellent flavors. Topped with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and sour cream. Now the bad news - this recipe is 9 points under the new WW points plus program. Worth every point for the large portion you get!
  5. omg my fam love it i use ground turkey and made my own salsa cuz i didnt have none very good


  1. Used Frito Corn Chips instead of Corn Tortillas. Put a dollop of sour cream on top of helping when served. Yummy!
  2. Used full fat options , kidney beans, Greek yogurt, and fresh jalapeño.
  3. Made as directed -- most excellent! I love things hot so next time will use salsa instead of diced tomatoes. A keeper! Thanks for posting! LOVE THIS SITE!!
  4. This is so good and easy~and it makes a lot so I can eat off it all week! The only change I made was to add a can of chopped green chilis and I used light sour cream instead of non fat (the only kind I had). I also used a can of corn instead of frozen. Next time I may stir in a little salsa and try ground turkey breast to reduce the fat content even more! I served this with whole wheat tortillas.<br/>Thanks so much for posting this!
  5. Made own taco seasoning, swapped plain yogurt for sour cream, used 4 T colby jack cheese, frozen cooked corn, added a can of Rotel with green chile's (mild).
