"It was okay, considering that it is healthy and cheap, but I think I would rather just have a normal taco or burrito"

"This a great idea for a healthy lunch. I didn't have taco sauce so I used salsa instead and I topped the finished burrito with cheddar, extra salsa and hot sauce. Also plain yogurt might taste good on top."
