Makes 12 Tacos
Low Calorie version: 2 tacos at 251 calories

Low Calorie Version

 La Tortilla Factory Low Carb small Torillas (I purchase these at Safeway or if on the Road at

Hand made Corn Tortillas for The Lineman, smaller than the low carb ones:

1.5 lbs 93% lean ground beef
1/4 cup diced yellow onion
1 15 oz can fat free refried beans
Shreaded lettuce
Cherry Tomatoes
Cheddard cheese shreaded
Fat Free Sour Cream

Preheat oven to broil.

Brown ground beef and onions. I do not add add seasoning to my meat so I can use the left overs in something else (I use the left overs from this dish for my low cal Lasanga for tomorrow night). Once the beef is cooked cover and set aside. Heat oil in pan to fry tortillas in.

Spray the Low Carb version of the La Tortilla Factory tortillas with Pam on both sides. I put a little pie pan in the center to help hold the shape. Broil for about 4 minutes on each side.

Broiled "Low Cal" Tortilla

Fry each corn Taco shell about 2 minutes on each side

Heat beans in microwave safe container for about 2 minutes, stirring halfway.

Build your tacos the way you like them. See low cal version below.


For the Low Cal Tacos:
2 oz ground beef
1/4 cup beans
1/2 cup lettuce
4 cherry tomatoes
Split between two low carb taco shells.
