Health Twist
To save on fat and calories, use ground turkey breast instead of ground beef. You'll save 7 grams of fat and 50 calories per serving.
Variation
For taco meat with a kick, use half ground beef and half spicy chorizo sausage.
Special Touch
Carry out the Mexican theme of your menu with bowls of black beans, Spanish rice, tortilla chips and salsa.
Substitution
Mole sauce is a rich, spicy and slightly sweet Mexican sauce. Look for it with the Mexican ingredients in your supermarket. If it's unavailable, enchilada sauce is a good substitute.
