    TeresaS's Note:

    This is a great recipe out of my Weight Watchers "Take-Out Tonight!" cookbook. This also makes an excellent dip for veggies or baked tortillas. This has 6 points per serving, I also like to add in some 0 point things like salsa, pickled jalapenos and cilantro. DH who isn't watching points likes to throw on some shredded cheese. :)

      These tacos were great! I've never added the refried beans with the meat before. DH and I enjoyed the creaminess of that mixture. I didn't bother with the 1 tsp oil as I almost never use oil to brown ground beef and I used soft taco shells. Of course there were lots of fixings to add in as suggested. Thanks for sharing.

      WARNING!!! DO NOT COOK THE SHELLS ON 400 degrees! They will burn! Most of the time they are cooked @ 325 for 3-8ish minutes (depending on the brand) NOT 400. I wasn't paying attention and followed the directions and burned them. Had to start that all over again when everything else was done. The other problem is - if you use meat with more fat you have to strain it (and you don't need to add the oil), and so adding the seasoning when the directions say to is NOT a good idea. That being said these were awesome & I'll continue to make them this way from now on.

      Yummy, hearty taco filling! I used 96% lean ground beef and used cooking spray in place of oil. The refried beans serve to stretch the ground beef as well as add some flavor and texture. We had this filling in hard and soft taco shells and we had a taco fixins bar. I may add refried beans to my taco filling all the time now. Thanx for posting!
