Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so yummy and simple! This is so yummy and simple! You can mix it up and try new things too! I've used ground turkey meat to make it leaner and season the meat with a taco seasoning packet.. I like it when I add refried beans inside, and I've also used black beans. Top it with sour cream or whatever you want! My husband asks for this quite often!

I did add some taco seasoning mix to the hamburger mixture because I find salsa doesn't give enough flavor. A filling meal served with Spanish rice and some chopped lettuce and tomato.
