  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Crumple 4 large sheets of foil to make 4 (3-inch) balls; place on baking sheet. Top each with 1 tortilla; spray with cooking spray. Bake 6 to 8 min. or until tortillas are golden brown. (Tortillas will drape over balls as they bake.)
  3. Meanwhile, brown meat with chili powder in large nonstick skillet. Stir in beans and salsa; cook 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  4. Fill tortilla shells with salad greens, meat mixture, cheese and tomatoes. Drizzle with dressing.


  • Makeover - How We Did It: We've taken a favourite recipe and made it over by substituting extra-lean ground beef and KRAFT Calorie-Wise Rancher's Choice Dressing for the full-fat products. In addition, the tortillas are baked, not fried. This saves a total of 130 calories and 16 grams of total fat per serving.
  • Storing Leftover Canned Ingredients: When recipes call for partial-can measures of ingredients such as broth or tomato paste, place the leftovers in a freezer-safe plastic container and freeze for another use. If small portions are needed, divide the ingredient into desired portion sizes before freezing.

Another lowfat option for replacing the fried taco shells is using Chapatis. I use the recipe from this site and then bake them on our flat top gridle.

A good, basic recipe. I made a few changes, though: I did not use tortillas but tortilla chips ; I added some allspice and red pepper to beef while cooking it, and not nearly as much chili powde...

I made this just for me, leaving the boys to their own "taco smiles". I was feeling kind of lazy, so I just used a pizza cutter to cut my whole wheat tortilla into small pieces and threw it in t...

Really good combination , like the beans for extra protein . A little high in sodium still trying to find a way to cut that . I love the 6 serving option lol especially the amount of cheese I wo...

The shells were too hard. Don't know if need to use them when they come right out of the oven??
