"I loved these,but have to give less than five b/c my picky boys, and husband did not like it. Loved the flavors. made a taco salad with the leftovers the next day."

"I had to make a couple of changes because of the sodium content for our family but I really liked this recipe. It was quick and smart. I can't use any alcohol even in cooking so I just replaced the beer with unsalted veggie broth and chili sauce (store bought) has lots of sodium so I made a little of the same with no-salt tomato paste and Mrs. Dash no-salt chili mix, of course I omitted the salt in the recipe and used low-sodium Worcestershire. Nice part is I cooked quite a bit of ground turkey in the micro and after draining I put half in my freezer before adding seasoning to use for sloppy joes (low-sodium of course) next week."

"My family LOVES this recipe... even my 5 and 8 year old sons who are horribly picky. We don't change anything... just add lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and salsa for toppings. Yum!"

"You can't just eat 1 taco! This wonderful and easy recipe. The meat mixture freezes really well so you can warm it up on a busy weeknight. - Laura (Melrose Park, IL)"
