Substitution
It’s easy to substitute ground turkey or chicken for the ground beef. If you don’t have a nonstick skillet, you may want to spray your skillet with cooking spray before cooking the ground turkey.
Variation
If crisp taco shells aren't your style, make a "wrap." Place the filling in the center of a soft flour tortilla, and roll it up!
