Chili Today, Hot Tamale (Chili Beef Tacos)

I know. It's entirely to hot to be making tacos. Look at that steam coming up from that pan! I'm a crazy woman...crazy for tacos. These were very easy to put together and extremely tasty. Makes a lot and even better the next day.
Chili Beef Tacos
adapted from Weight Watchers Online

2 1/2 tbl chili powder (or more if you like it hot)
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb uncooked lean ground beef (7% fat)
16 oz canned tomato sauce
16 oz canned kidney beans

Toast chili powder and cumin in a medium skillet over medium heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add oil to skillet and heat; add onion and cook until tender (about 3 minutes).

Add beef and cook until done. Add tomato sauce and beans; cook 5 minutes more or until heated through.

Serving size 1/2 cup
WW points 3
Points Plus 8


This is how I made this happen. I lucked up and found some high fiber, low carb wheat tortillas for one point. I used two tortillas and filled each of them with 1/4 cup of meat. I then used some reduced fat sour cream and some WW cheese to round the meal off. If making this meal and counting points - be sure to count everything you add to the taco.

If the thought of standing of the stove and making tacos is more than you can handle...bookmark this one. It's a keeper.
