Rated 5 out of 5 by from I found a similar recipe from another site about a month ago- without the onion, the chili powder,... I found a similar recipe from another site about a month ago- without the onion, the chili powder, and the sour cream- and with chopped red and green peppers, black beans, and diced tomatoes. I also substituted ground turkey, hard corn tortillas, and fat free cheddar cheese. I really enjoyed that version of the recipe! My mother and father, who are not used to healthier things, didn't care for it so much. They thought there were too many "veggies," lol. Very, very, VERY good if you ask me though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is definitely an easy low-cal recipe. This is definitely an easy low-cal recipe. I used half the measurements of the ingredients (served 4). The meat sauce was on the bland side for me, so I spiced it up with 1 tbsp of garlic powder and some salt for add'l taste. I also added kidney beans and cilantro all throughout the sauce (cilantro brings out a lot of flavor in this dish). I then garnished with chopped cilantro and green onions just before serving. Overall, easy recipe and very tasty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of my favorite things to eat. This is one of my favorite things to eat. It's impossible to believe something low-cal can taste so fattening. I love that there is always extra filling and tortillas (I use low carb, high fiber, whole wheat tortillas and you cannot taste them in the recipe) so I can make burritos for lunch all week. It's easy to change up the recipe and it always turn out delicious!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An easy and delicious addition to my weeknight menu. An easy and delicious addition to my weeknight menu. Not having bottled salsa, I used diced canned tomatoes and seasoned with cumin and more chili powder. Next time I plan to substitute canned black beans instead of corn. Hardy and satisfying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty. Very tasty. I made it in a round casserole dish, my tortillas fit perfectly. I cut some fat by using black beans in place of the ground beef for the protein and only 1/2 can of corn. Delicious!

This was a hit with our entire family (including our 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter. I added a can of black beans and used 1 lb. lean ground turkey breast instead of the ground beef.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious meal. Delicious meal. Very filling and tastes great even though it is healthy! The corn ads a nice sweetness to the rest of the spicy ingredients. Would be an easy mean to make-ahead.
