For the Skinny Mexican Street Tacos:

  1. 1 lb lean ground beef
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  4. 1 packet taco seasoning (low-sodium)
  5. 1 can (16 oz) refried beans (fat-free)
  6. 1 cup salsa con queso (reduced-fat)
  7. Corn or flour tortillas (small size)

For Toppings:

  1. Fresh tomatoes, diced
  2. Shredded lettuce
  3. Low-fat shredded cheese
  4. Greek yogurt (as a substitute for sour cream)
  5. Fresh cilantro, chopped
  6. Sliced jalapeños (optional)
  7. Fresh limes, cut into wedges


Step 1: Searing the Beef and Onions

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add finely chopped onions and sauté until translucent. Add lean ground beef, breaking it up with a spatula, and cook until browned.

Step 2: Seasoning the Beef 2. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the browned beef and onions, stirring to ensure even coating. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the seasoning is well incorporated.

Step 3: Preparing the Refried Beans and Queso 3. In a separate saucepan, warm the fat-free refried beans over medium heat. Simultaneously, heat the reduced-fat salsa con queso in a microwave-safe container according to package instructions.

Step 4: Assembling the Tacos 4. Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet or microwave. Spread a layer of refried beans on each tortilla, followed by a generous scoop of the seasoned beef mixture. Drizzle with salsa con queso.

Step 5: Toppings Galore 5. Customize your tacos with diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, low-fat shredded cheese, Greek yogurt, fresh cilantro, and sliced jalapeños for an added kick.

Step 6: The Finishing Touch 6. Squeeze fresh lime wedges over the assembled tacos, imparting a burst of citrusy freshness.
